Fine dining. Excellent menu and presentation. Unsurprisingly 2 courses and a glass of wine cost about £29 per head (including a tip) so it could be considered a bit of a treat. On the other hand you could consider it well worth paying a couple...More

I've previously reviewed here and stated it's one of my favourite dining experiences. Visited again and was disappointed. Good food but very small portions. All the other tables had bread (needed to fill you up!) but we didn't. Kids meals were good value but they...More

Very tasty authentic pizza here. It seems some people here are reviewing the pizzeria and others the restaurant which is a bit confusing as they very different and in different buildings albeit under the same Wynnstay ownership. Anyway, the much missed pizzeria is back open...More

Thank you for this kind review. Sadly, some people just don't like change - but we had to make changes. We learned some lessons from re-opening night and, as you say, these are being addressed.

Hello, Sorry for the late reply. Yes, we are dog-friendly, which means that doors can eat with their owners, so long as they are not too wet and smelly or disturb others. You may meet Jasper, our terrier, when you come.
