Had a nice lunch but service a bit slow and it wasn't busy. Not very attentive service it food OK if a bit pricey, but that reflects the area.Better across the road at Wyevale!

This is a lovely, large and very popular restaurant. We went on a Wednesday night and it was extremely busy with only a couple of tables free. The menu was nicely broad, covering two sides of A4, with daily changes. The kind I'd food available is a good mixture of old classics extremely well done and slightly fancier dishes. My party of four all loved our food; my blue cheese, vegetarian pie was amazing. The portions are so large I was glad I'd reluctantly decided against a starter, as I wouldn't have finished my main had I eaten anything before.
The only downside of this place is the noise levels. I'm not sure why it's so bad and what they can do about it but we couldn't hear each other over a table for four.

I did exactly that, new chef, new owner, and new menu since I went here over a year ago. I have been again 4 times for dinner/ lunch, and it was really nice now. Very friendly, lovely food, great wine, great chefs, staff with lots of knowledge, happy, so good to them to please us with their helpfullness attitude. I am going again with 19 people friends for my Birthday next month.

Four of us went for Sunday lunch and the place was very busy however, this did not stop them providing excellent service and great food. The waitress was very professional and the food was prompt, hot and generous portions. The Sunday roast was super quality and the desserts scrumptious. Well done to everyone concerned, I have already booked for November.
