I've eaten lunch at the restaurant regularly, and it has always been really good. However, it appears to have changed hands as the cooking, although not bad, is nowhere near as good as it was until a few months ago. The lunchtime menu is smaller than before, with fewer choices, and there are now a number of 'light bites' which... More

I went there with a friend to celebrate our birthdays and were definitely not disappointed. Food and service were excellent and we will definitely go back.

My partner and I had a meal here last saturday night. The service and ambience were right and we were looking forward to a good meal. When the onion soup was delivered to us we were beyond impressed and joked that the rest of the meal may struggle to live up to the standards of this amazing soup! Seriously, I... More

I visited this restaurant with my family and partner to celebrate my father's birthday. Following a previously good meal with pleasant service last year I was confident of a good evening. Regrettably, the food was poor and the service was worse. My partner chose the chicken dish which arrived cold - and on a cold plate, which I can never... More

Last minute visit, went for the set menu, which had some very good choices, the sweet corn chowder was very nice. Mains were nice, the pork belly was very tender. Had some very good value Rioja nice for about £20.

I wrote a review a year or two ago. We still go there fairly regularly and I have to say that after our last two visits when I had wonderful rib eyes it IS the best restaurant in the town centre. The fat chips are the best around. The fish and chip offering is also great and a nice selection... More

Service was very slow. Five starters were ordered - only four appeared. After some waiting we had to ask for the fifth starter. Of the main courses,two were dreadful - veal escalopes which were tough and full of fat and gristle. both of us ate only a small part of each. We complained to the waitress but nothing happened.

We booked a meal for our anniversary after viewing the menu online. When arriving the staff were very polite and attentive and pointed out our table in the small but very pretty downstairs dining room. When viewing the menus, we were surprised to find that they were different and with significantly less variety than the online version. We had starters... More

Firstly we would like to thank you for choosing our restaurant to celebrate this special occasion. However we are sorry that you felt let down in certain aspects of your meal with us. The menu online had been put up a little hastily but we can certainly say now that all dishes are available to order that are stated online.... More
