A refuge in the Covid storm. Nice to be able to eat out (for now!) Quiet calm safe dining with tables well spaced out and staff taking care to keep people as far apart as possible. No alcohol allowed at present so can't really comment on drinks. Food delivered was not exactly as on the menu but this isn't a problem, it was all lovely. I think hospitality will be having a hard time just now knowing when to order in stock and when to deplete to avoid waste given the uncertainty about when they will be able to open. We had a lovely time and the staff were really friendly and helpful.

A larger coffee and more tea with afternoon tea would be nice. Also be better if the drinks arrived with food instead of ten mins before but apart from that everything was superb

Staying here as part of( small) wedding party. Breakfast was cooked to order with an extensive range of hot items. Service was friendly and punctual and the staff were scrupulous in following all safety guidelines which made it relaxing for us xx

Really well organised, good number of staff who looked after us well with plenty of room between tables. Loved the idea of the Fish & Chip lunch and it didn't disappoint :)

Daughter's pizza base had mould on it before she could decorate it. My inlaws had the Chicken fajitas and it was so spicy they could barely eat it. My father in law had to ask for milk to cool his mouth down. It was a birthday celebration and the waiter brought out my husband's cake and didn't light the candles. Wouldn't rush back I'm afraid.

Food was lovely and service brilliant. Felt soft drinks were a bit on the pricey side. The staff are friendly and efficient. I would recommend trying it out
