A warm welcome from the front of house staff preceded an excellent meal, nicely served. We had the lemon sole with a mussel sauce and the venison. All was extremely well cooked and the whole meal was good value for money.

Another great lunch for a large number. Always able to cater for gluten free. Star of the show was the creme brûlée with brandy soaked raisins at the bottom. Delicious.

We really enjoyed the food which was really tasty and well presented. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful. We tried an English white wine for the first time on her recommendation and were very pleasantly surprised at how nice it was.

We have visited several times and just live this place. The staff couldn’t be more helpful and the food is amazing with some interesting twists. Excellent hake in bouillabaisse and cauliflower, cumin and lentil fritters today.
