Great surroundings, great service and good food but such a pity that portions of chips, mushy peas, custard and most likely other elements of meals are so meagre.... The mini-sized serving dishes that hold approximately one tablespoonful of mushy peas, custard etc. are in my eyes insulting and for a few pence extra cost could have got me rating 5... More

We were 2 couples for an early evening dinner. We chose the special 3 courses for £14.50. The food came quickly, was well presented and tasty. The staff were friendly & efficient. A lovely evening with friends.

Booked a table for 3 over the phone. When we arrived, we were advised that some people had said it was a little cold on the area that had been reserved for us, however if we wanted to sit more in the bar area then a table would be cleared - was a nice gesture from Frankie our waitress, but...

Visited the restaurant on a very busy Friday night with out a booking and two very hungry children, Although they were fully booked a table was cleared for us straight away and they squeezed us in. Great food and service, very friendly and efficient waitress Mel was brilliant. So good going back for lunch today.

We booked a table for 3 adults + 1 child for 2.30pm (the earliest table available .... advanced booking is a must for weekends). The restaurant was busy throughout our visit but the service was excellent with no delays. Lucy, our waitress, was very attentive. There was a small error with our food order but it was corrected without any... More
