Wonderful food, served with care by friendly, helpful staff. Venue is charming and worth taking the time to read the history of this special place. Will be watching Great British Menus this year to see how their head chef fares - Good luck!

This is our third visit in the last 9 months and it gets better every time. We took advantage of the £49 for 2 offer which was excellent value. The food and service was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
