We were staying in the area to watch rugby and this restaurant came highly recommended. The menu was extensive and interesting and I had a great clam starter. Had a problem with my main course but the staff resolved my issue efficiently. Venue is lovely. My only slight issue is with the lack of wine knowledge in the bar. Asked... More

Booked our pre Christmas girls lunch out. Being vegetarian I checked the veggie 'option' which was a lazy offering. of a mushroom gratin!?

Service was slow and we had to ask to be served several times. The food we were served was to a high standard and tasted lovely. Great food but service needs... More
