My 5th visit to this restaurant and it never disappoints. On this occasion it was for lunch with a party of 5 friends. Splendid 3 courses of food, 2 bottles of fine wine, 3 brandies and coffee came to £31/head..........bargain!! Friendly staff and atmospheric surroundings. Highly recommended, but do need to book early...... it's very popular.

We have dined here many times and the food and service is always excellent. As we have small children we rarely get to dine out in the evening and really look forward to eating here. The lunch menu is excellent value too.

We booked to be sure of a table and it was necessary! The food was great with a very wide choice and the Pinot was just right. Excellent value for money all round. What let it down was the speed of food from the kitchen. Delays in ordering, long delay for mains and further delay for puddings. Lots of apologies... More
