Thank you for an absolutely perfect evening. The staff was charming. The food was scrumptious. The restaurant is beautiful, clean and warm and inviting. We’ll definitely be back again and again.

The venison Burger was a little dry, and considering 2 of the meals were burgers it was a little expensive,

Side orders didn’t arrive with meal and after 10 mins of waiting had to say to member of staff.Both meals had to be reordered. When paying bill wasn’t asked how we found our experience. Felt staff were under trained and other diners in the restaurant had complaints also. Food was nice but overall service and experience let it down

Really lovely restaurant in a quiet spot out in Lisbane. Wasn’t too happy that they ran out of beef on Sunday when we were both excited for it, but I did move the table back from 1430 to 1630 and it seemed busy so I can only blame myself; the steak and duck mains we opted for instead were incredible. My only issue with the meal was being sat between three families, 1 of which was a large family dinner, and not being able to hear each other half of the meal because of crying kids. We were a couple out for a nice Sunday roast. I do know these things can’t be helped though, but a bit of consideration when there were other tables and booths available at the take wold have been nice. However, all in all we had a beautiful dinner and I would recommend the sharing platter with a couple of extra slices of sourdough to get you going.

The food was delicious and nicely presented. I like that you have a range of small portions as options.

Food very good but unfortunately the service let it down very slow between courses and drinks took that long my wife and myself thought they had forgot them all together. Over all not the best Sunday lunch we have had there and with us using a Christmas voucher it’s was a bit disappointing. Sharp up the service and it’s hard to beat. Sunday lunch was very tasty tho

Great food unfortunately not matched by service. It was a packed restaurant on NYE but service was very slow and seemed well understaffed. Presumably just a bad night. Food was 10/10.

We booked a table for lunch for a catch up with school friends. The food was great, a conventional menu but quality ingredients very well cooked. Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food. The staff are friendly and were happy for us to hang around the table chatting

We had an absolutely beautiful meal on New Year’s Eve and have raved about this to family and friends. I had the steak special which in itself was an expensive main course, I had asked for a different sauce than the one it came with from the menu which I was told by our waitress was no problem. However, when the meal came the wrong sauce was on the plate and when I asked for my preferred sauce I was charged extra on the bill. This was a bit disappointing given we were spending quite a lot of money already and the mistake was on the restaurant’s part. Other than this we couldn’t fault it!

Everyone enjoyed Hogmanay lunch though the crab claws I had were tasteless, sourdough bread was nice though. You also get a good cup of coffee. Friendly attentive staff.

The only area I had concern with was 2 of our meals (burgers) were plain and the order was with cheese and bacon. Although this was quickly rectified. The service and food was excellent, and would highly recommend it.

Food was excellent and staff friendly and full of fun conversation and could not be more pleasant. However the service to clear plates was very slow and I had to seek that they clear. I assume they were just busy as otherwise excellent.
