I visited the restaurant on Friday the 4th of November for my dads 70th birthday a table of 12 at 7.30pm. I just wanted to say how disappointed I was at the service, the food as usual was fantastic but the service was appalling, I had to go and ask for the menus after being seated for half an hour...

Catherine First off I would like to apologise for what you felt was poor service during your visit. This is not something we come to expect from ourselves. We were extremely busy that night, with 80% of our orders and customers coming in almost at once and unfortunately sometimes that can cause slight errors, which is something we are working... More

Not impressed with the food. I had sea bass. One small fillet. A friend had skate. It was huge. Yucky coffee, which I asked to be changed & got the same thing again. When I respectfully complained my compliant was taken well & a discount was received. Shame as we had been to this restaurant 18 months ago & the... More

I have been there today and I was so pleasantly surprised. I had the roast lamb and it was rare with the fat crispy on the outside, just perfect. Roast beef, lovely too. Starters and desserts really tasty and all three courses for £25 which I thought was really worth it. My other half calls me a good snob so... More

I have used this restaurant previously and found it reasonable. This time I was bitterly disappointed. The venison burger was overcooked and served in a stale bun. My wife had the prawn risotto. There was one rubbery prawn that was hard to cut. We passed our comments to the waiter who wasnt at all concerned, smiled at us and walked... More

Lovely meal, good service but feel overpriced for the area, had many good meals in more exuberant areas at a lesser price. Would think twice before re-visiting which is a shame.
