Can we get back to the nice bread that you used to provide.
Very good. Thanks.
Have been to this restaurant before and as before, excellent service, food and ambience
Absolutely first rate in all regards - really made my 60th celebration special for myself, family and friends
Always a warm welcome, plus great food and relaxed ambience all add up to a great time. For business or pleasure, it's always superb!
We had a lovely meal. All aspects of the evening were great but topped off by the excellent waiter and waitress who served us!
Wonderful evening celebrating our wedding anniversary staff very attentive and food superb
A very relaxed and enjoyable lunch
You are now hereby classified as our favourite restaurant. We have dined with you a number of times and I really do believe that people should know that if they are looking for a beautiful setting, great customer service coupled with a fine dining experience, then they need to look no further. We frequently dine with you and every time we do, its an absolute pleasure. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Excellent service and food as always, not the cheapest but you get what you pay for and its worth it. Ambience in the garden on a sunny day was perfect felt as if we were on holiday.
excellent as always !
Great food although a little pricey. Will definitely be back
A delightful Saturday evening dinner, served with a smile in the restaurant, rather than in the bar. Lovely food, friendly and attentive staff, nothing was too much trouble. Not a cheap night out - £135 for 3, including drinks, excluding tip - but fine for a special occasion.
An Excellent lunch.
Fantastic food. Great place to eat
Dissaponted with the price we were charged for a large glass of Savignon Blanc £9.00 +. Spoiled the occasion for us.
We were initially disappointed because we were not booked in the restaurant area, as requested, however the staff were really accommodating and found us a table which was in a quieter area and very comfortable.
Always a great place for excellent food. Plenty of choice and the specials are always interesting and innovative. Great staff too and we are all looking forward to our next visit.
Love the happy atmosphere, our favourite eating house 💖
As always the food was superby (I had steak and then a rhubard & ginger tart with custard for dessert). Definitely recommend to anyone wanting excellent food.
