Booking is simple over the phone. Menu is varied and specials are available. All is cooked to a good standard. Portions are large and filling. We decided to have main and desert but we never reached the desert we were too full. Service was good and attentive. Reasonably priced

Had the most anaemic and meagre trout fillets that looked... More

Went here for evening meal. Food quite good but not as described in the menu. Desserts very expensive for v small portion. Staff very friendly but it would have been nice to have been offered coffee at the end of the meal.
