Lovely venue - gets very busy - book early. Good menu - excellent variety. Have eaten here a few times now. Tiramisu is the best have tasted in a long time. Have had steak and fish - no complaints. Would definately recommend.

Visited today for an eighteenth birthday party with children ranging from 5 upwards. What a disappointment food was overpriced and to be honest very poor. Where do pubs get away with asking £6 for a dessert. Do yourselves a favour stay in and save yourselves...More

We took our Mums for lunch, it was very busy, but food and service were great. Would have preferred a more varied menu, but I appreciate limitations are necessary on such a busy day. Will definitely be back soon.
