It's a place to book as it's so popular. A Sunday lunch with waiter service. great menu, lovely food, well presented and great staff. Quality food, great taste, great service. there's a good wine and beer selection too! A must for a special meal, or a must for special people wanting a great experience.

Very disappointed with our Sunday dinner. Tiny portions at expensive prices. No greens at all with vegetables, half a carrot per person and a quarter of parsnip isn't what I call a portion of veg. Will not be recommending or retuning.

We visited as a group of four on a Friday night. It wasn't as busy as expected but still had a nice atmosphere. Good choice of real ales, well cooked food and reasonable value. We liked the home cooked bread. The menu was good without being overly long. Only possible complaint was that there was a lot of pigeon, rabbit... More

We've been visiting this restaurant now for 10 years, and its always our first choice on a special occasion. The food is outstanding and the menu is always seasonal.
