We had such wonderful service on Sunday. This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff could not have been more helpful. Our waitress was so welcoming and friendly and the food and atmosphere was fantastic. We were celebrating my mother-in-laws birthday and my last min request of a card for her was done and was such a nice touch, thank you. She also loved her sorbet that you gave her. All the staff seemed to know it was her birthday and wished her well, it was just wonderful. We were sat right next to the kitchen which we thought would be loud and noisy but it wasn’t. James was in and seemed like a really nice guy and chatting to the staff. Thank you all so much and we will be back- even though it’s an hours drive!!

Superb food and service. We had mentioned in passing to the young waiter taking our drinks order that it was our anniversary and had been looking forward to our first visit, nothing more was said. The food was superb and filling so not wanting dessert I requested the bill. Before I received it we had delivered to our table two plates with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate with a beautiful scoop of ice cream and crunchy chocolate bits. A great personal touch and we will be returning with our friends.

Very friendly and efficient staff. Lovely food and great choice of wines. A bit on the expensive side but the food is worth it, I'd definitely go back for a special occasion.

Great place to celebrate our 50 wedding anniversary with friends. We were well looked after despite a very large table of men in another room. Food was delicious and great service. We will def be back.
