We visited as part of quite a large group but our food came out promptly and was of extremely high quality. I'd highly recommend this restaurant, the food and staff are consistently good. I'd particularly recommend the lamb shank and rhubarb pudding!

I better start by saying that I've been fortunate enough to have dined at the Ritz but I have to say the standard of the food and the friendliness and service from the staff were better at this restaurant! The menu, which isn't over complicated gives you a good choice of dishes without going on for pages and pages, the... More

First visit to this restaurant after reading good reviews and won't be last. Excellent food, service and ambience. Helpful and friendly staff. Visited on Thursday lunchtime so was fairly quiet but still a very relaxing and enjoyable lunch. The mushrooms in a cream sauce in filo basket were delicious. I used a taste card so was superb value but normal... More

Visited tonight, Weds, they only open Weds to Sun, and it was very quiet, one other couple on arrival and then one more couple and a group of three ladies, that was it. It is quite a large restaurant it did feel very empty. However, the food and service was very good. Starters of prawn and smoked salmon on salad... More

Great food, very helpful friendly staff, competitively priced. We went during the week at lunchtime so relatively quiet. Menu was varied and provided plenty of choice whether wanting a full meal or just a light snack. We will definitely be back

Visited here for a family dinner, the place was busy however lacks atmosphere. The staff were friendly and welcoming but they were clearly short staffed and once sat at the table rather inattentive. Our starters were poor, old salad which given the price should not have been served and very dry fishcakes. Our mains were tasty however no time was... More

Had the 2 course Sunday lunch, beautifully cooked and delicious beef accompanied by a wide choice of fresh crisp vegetables. Friendly helpful staff managed to squeeze us in as we hadn't booked. The restaurant was full of of very happy diners, we will definitely return but I do recommend booking as it is so popular for good reason.

Very friendly staff - we were served by three ladies and all of them had excellent customer service skills and we were given a lovely warm welcome. My main course sea bass was excellent - simply cooked and full of flavour, my prawn cocktail however was disappointing - the dressing was harsh and there was loads of salad and very... More
