Had a really fantastic meal. It was difficult to choose from the menu as everything sounded so good. The haddock croquettes and scotch eggs were amazing. The steak was very good and came medium rare as requested. Left a bit of room to share the crumble, which was divine!

Very nice meal. Lovely venue and great service. Atmosphere only marked lower as we arrived for opening as we had to be somewhere else for 7pm so it wasn't that busy!

The pork and prawn ball starter was a bit of a disappointment both in flavour and presentation but the beef bourguignon made up for it. and was just right for such a chilly winter's evening. Our waitress was lovely, friendly and served us very well. Will come again!

it was a fantastic evening. The food, service, and ambience was excellent. We've dined at this restaurant a number of times now and we always leave happy and looking forward to the next time. We introduced friends to the experience this time and they were equally impressed - it's a new favourite for them now too.
