Thank you for your review. I am delighted you had a wonderful experience with us and enjoyed the food so much. The chocolate bomb is a favourite and definitely a little bit of fun at the end of a meal, apologies the cheesecake was not available. It is one of the most popular desserts and we had sold out quite... More

My wife & I attended a dinner here last Tuesday, as a member of a party of about 35 walkers. We thought the food was excellent. The staff were very good: cheerful, patient & considerate. Getting some of the courses served could have been a bit more slick and took a little while, but it is not easy catering for... More

This is the first time at this restaurant for a number of years, we visited upon recommendation.. Advised to book which we did, although upon arrival early we were shown straight to our table, useful as there really isn't many places to sit and chat. Whilst the food was very good and plentiful it did take 1 hour before we... More

Thank you for your review. I am pleased you enjoyed the food, although you had to wait to receive it. Sunday was an extremely busy day for us and unusually we had a number of larger parties dining with us, which we don't normally have. This contributed to the longer wait on food, however I was not aware of any... More

We have eaten here numerous times but first time for Sunday lunch. It was really good! Good choice of starters and the roasts were superb. We had the lamb and pork. The coffee and mini desserts are a great way to finish the meal. We had a table at 12.30 and service was fine but it was getting very busy... More

My wife and I had an evening meal here. The staff were very friendly and the dining room was spacious and attractive, with comfortable seats; the only negative was the background pop music which was just loud enough to be annoying. There was a good choice of dishes for all courses. For the main course, my wife had beef Wellington,... More
