A group of 17 of us went here for dinner on a Saturday night, The place was packed.There was a Set Meal in the Conservatory, because of the large group. It was a Beautiful meal, .Lovely staff.Would definitely recommend it,The only fault was the door led on to the smoking area, which was a little draughty.

We had a meal booked for 17 family and friends. We had pre-ordered -with Amanda -from their set menu before arriving. The service was very friendly and efficient especially as there were other big tables in. Everyone was very complimentary about the food and service. We had a great night.

We are here on a groupon voucher for the hot rocks meal. To be honest I wasn't expecting much as we have dined on these vouchers at other establishments and more often than not found that the portions are tiny compared with 'a la carte' portions. But I was pleasantly surprised that both the starter and main were huge! There... More

Visited the Clipper for a family birthday treat, 14 of us in total. Great service from the staff as soon as we walked in. Food was great, from starters to dessert. The kiddies play area outside is a great place for the kids to go. Well done to all the staff for a great, efficient service. We'll definitely be back... More

The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough throughout and the little park was great for keeping the kids happy and allowing everyone to have a pleasant dinner. The food was excellent and the cocktails were... More
