Good selection on the menu. Attentive waitresses who were available should you require extra drinks etc. Food well cooked. Good selection of drinks. Busy on the Sunday we went but they still managed to get the food out hot and full of flavours. Well done.

Fabulous lunch with exceptional, personal service. Very friendly management and staff. The restaurant is large and stylish, a beautiful country inn set amidst the countryside but close enough to major roads makes it easily accessible.
