The food quality, choice and portion sizes were excellent. Staff were friendly and attentive whilst adhering to all Covid regulations. Relaxed atmosphere and decor. Only negative about the restaurant for me were the toilet facilities which were quite scruffy. This surprised me as I expected the standard to match that of the restaurant and excellent food and service. Having said that I wouldn’t hesitate to return.

We did have an hour waiting time from when we ordered to when we got our food and it was all sandwiches etc so nothing that needed much prep although it was all good when it arrived.

Food lovely service was very slow. Ordered a starter which they forgot about and brought out mains. Focused on a larger table nearby rather than everyone

We had a lovely meal and cannot fault the food. However our service and experience was not what I expected. We were one of the first people in the restaurant and were seated and asked to wait for the menus to be printed. The lady serving in the restaurant had not even been told by her colleague we were sitting there so ended up waiting a long time before getting menus or even a drink. The restaurant soon filled up and it was clear that everyone else was having there starters and mains before ours. A family came in after us and had starters mains and were ordering pudding buy the time we hadn't even had our mains. When we questioned this a man went to check and never came back to tell us what was happening. I then had to question it again with another girl who said ours were 2 dishes from coming out and again another couple were served there mains before us. When our mains finally come it took a further 7 mins for our veg to follow in which we were both half way through our mains. At the end of our meal my partner attempted to ask a waiter going past for the bill in which he was rudely told to wait. I was very disappointed by the service and was not what I would have expected from the loopy shrew.

Felt very comfortable in the restaurant, the tables were nicely spaced. Very pleasant & relaxed atmosphere, actually preferable to the sometimes louder and busier Saturday atmosphere!

Booked a table for dinner which had only been processed for drinks...sat us at a table anyway and gave us the dinner menu. Once they say us down we were then ignored until I asked if we could order. Once we ordered they evidently forgot to serve us, as I again had to go up and ask where the food was. Food had obviously been sat on the side for a period of time as when I asked for our food it was immediately served, all be it slightly burned and dry... Wasn't impressed with the service at all, and the food was merely adequate and was not good enough for the price paid.

Very slow service, waited 2 hours to be served our main meal- had to wait for menus to be given to us ect, had to go and put more parking tickets on as food took so long to come out- the food was lovely but the timing was disappointing!
