We decided to go somewhere different for a change and very glad we did. Staff were lovely, food was plentiful and tasty. Could have done with a bit more gravy and Yorkshire was a bit crispy. But overall top notch place.

Noticed the new menu and was immediately attracted to the lobster and mango salsa starter, which you don't often see, so when the opportunity arose for a Friday evening meal, we went without a booking but that wasn't a problem, and the lobster was great,...More
