As always the food was fantastic. We arrived early as the it can get quite busy the later in the afternoon. Horkens garden centre had 3 deer housed out back which amused the children. Very happy and will return.

Met a friend here and had some food. There was a good selection of specials for the lunch menu. As it was a little early for lunch we opted for soup and a coffee afterwards. The chowder and the tomato and basil soup were enjoyed by both. The place was surprisingly busy. Staff were attentive, pleasant and most helpful. Nice... More

I don't know what's happened over the last few months but the quality of food served has plummeted and to be honest the place needs a "deep clean", just to explain...the "dividers" between the tables are covered in dust and the lower dividers(skirting boards) are encrusted in "...

I used to love this restaurant. Yesterday I ordered seafood chowder. Tasteless, gone off, bottom of the pot. I found two fish spinal columns in my bowl. Went to the bathroom and vomited. Will be a long time before I come here again.
