The food was excellent, but the service was very slow. If you had been a bit quicker, we probably would have stayed for pudding.

Lovely restaurant with a cosy, homely atmosphere. Food and service both great too. We were a large group with lots of toddlers (10 adults and 5 toddlers) and the staff were extremely accommodating and patient with the children which made for a very stress free experience! Highly recommend!

Visited on Sunday and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I was really happy that you have vegan options and could enjoy a lovely roast alongside my meat eating partner. Our first waitress was lovely and explained the vegan options really well and kept us informed throughout. I look forward to visiting again soon.

We sat down at 1.30pm, starters arrived after 40 minutes, received our mains around 3.30pm. Some staff apologised, some didn’t and seemed to see patrons as a hinderance. The food was good when it did arrive. Such a shame. We won’t be returning again

This visit was a disaster. We were presented with a menu, without comment, that was considerably less than the one we had viewed online. We asked why and were told that that, Fawlty Towers-style, a revised one had been hurriedly printed due to 'problems in the kitchen'. Only when we expressed our disappointment was a mumbled apology forthcoming. We ordered drinks, a starter & two mains. The drinks came quickly but, after 40 minutes, no sign of any food. We enquired as to its whereabouts and finally, after 45 mins, two dishes appeared. However, these were the mains (!), not the starter. At that point, we decided to pay for the drinks and leave. As we left, an apology was issued for forgetting the starter. We will not be patronising this establishment again.

Everything was great. The service is still quite slow, but nice, just takes a while to get the food. We came with 4 children so that could have potentially been a problem. Otherwise, great experience.

We had a very enjoyable meal last Sunday afternoon. I have only given 3 stars for the service because, although the staff were very pleasant and personable, they need to be a little more aware of the customer's requirements. We had to ask for attention on a couple of occasions and the coffee that we ordered did not appear at all.

Although we were told the kitchen was busy, the service was unbelievably slow. Over an hour for the starters to arrive and then another long wait for the Main Course.
