Very pleasant greeting when we arrived and shown to our table. 4 of us chose the 3 course mid week set menu at £25.50 per person. Started with breads, olives and dips. Smoked salmon and cream cheese roulade, followed by lamb and then chocolate and pecan tart. All very nicely presented and very tasty. Staff attentive but not hovering around... More

But we didn't have to worry as she was very good. The restaurant supplied a high chair and even though. They don't have a child's menu they just did... More

Always a good meal here, nice service and good food is all you can ask for, and you will get it! I think they could do with a dimmer on the lights, as sometimes it feels a bit bright in there- would not put me off though Nice lunch service too Would recommend

Had the Marquee for a private works late Christmas meal. Very comfortable and we were allowed to play our own music cds The staff were superb,no long waits despite the restaurant being fairly full.
