A new restaurant for us, going with friends who are both local and regulars. The welcome, and service, was friendly and relaxed. Attractive surroundings although the atmosphere was a little quiet, truth be told, but they were going through some refurbishment and - it was an excellent evening - so I don't want to come across as critical. The menu... More

Visited here during the week in a party of 10 and opted for the 3 course for £25.50 menu - great value. Great choice of all 3 courses and everyone was pleased with their choices. The food looks so delicious with such care and precision in presenting the food in a picturesque fashion. The staff were extremely efficient and helpful... More

Last Thursday I 'phoned Darren, the owner of this restaurant to ask if they serve traditional fish & chips on a Friday. Darren said that it was not on the menu although he'd be happy to cook it for us if we chose to order. This we did, and the next day, Friday we were served the best fish &... More

4 of us managed to get a table for the Saturday evening, at short notice. We'd been before, but before my Trip Advisor days. Table wasn't quite ready, so we had a drink at the bar. Once sat, we were given our menus and wine list. Quite a few specials, and a decent choice on the a la carte menu.... More

Went here yesterday for my birthday meal with my partner and our 18 month old daughter. The food was incredible, the service was relaxed yet perfect, and the restaurant itself is really beautiful. You really felt looked after, we will definitely be returning!

I was really looking forward to going to this restaurant. This was a surprise birthday meal that was planned by my family in October. There were 7 of us and we all sat down for a Sunday Roast. Food was quite average and potatoes very dry, as if they had been cooked to death. Atmosphere was great and the overall... More

Had Christmas lunch work party on 21st for 17 people. The detail to attention given was first class and to add pleasure to this was the superb meal. Food for everybody was first class. Admittedly we had pre ordered but all served together. Overall a first class experience and would highly recommend this restaurant.

Fantastic place with great food and customer service. It was my husband birthday and I have booked this restaurant months ago. It was lovely festive atmosphere when we walked in. Actually we were here early and although the staff had their dinner, they still let us in. Seated us and taken our drink order straight away. Considering that we have... More

Lovely restaurant. Food was exceptional. Staff were so helpful too. Good value considering it's a 5 star dining experience. I guess vegetarian options could be better but as is usually the case...the better the restaurant the less veggie choices there are. Highly recommend.

An excellent product starts with the careful selection of the finest fresh ingredients. We source local produce whenever possible, our meats are reared at Essex farms and our fish is delivered fresh daily with much of our fruit and vegetables grown at home in the kitchen garden.
