We really enjoyed our special meal with Mum. Vegetarian options were good. Only drawback is that in order to bring in business they have off peak wedding offers and unexpectedly we shared the venue with a noisy pre-wedding party. It didn't spoil it for us but clearly did for a few other diners, especially a couple celebrating their 10th wedding... More

We enjoyed our meal here, the portions were more than I wasa expecting. Our server was a lovely guy that made us feel welcome. He also recommended some wines. My husband is a picky eater but he loved all of the three-course meal. The dining room is just lovely and felt romantic. We will be coming back soon.

Only had breakfast in this restaurant, it was very nice. There was plenty of choice of cereal, continental, fruit or cold meat. My wife had a full English, I had an omelette both were very nice. Service was good, the restaurant very clean and spacious. Proper leaf tea, plenty of milk, more than enough for more than two cups each
