Nicely refurbished with a pleasant ambiance. Sunday lunch was very nice, although typically English, with average sized portions and reasonably priced. Staff were excellent and very friendly. Would definitely go back on an evening and try the French menu.

A really delicious meal, from a French-style menu. Not too extensive, but varied enough for each one of our party to have something they really enjoyed - definitely going back there!

Do you mean wheelchair access? If so, we have a concrete ramp that leads from the car park into the kitchen. There is a two-inch high thresh at this point. Once inside the restaurant, everything is on one level. The fully... More
