The decor was really nice but it did... More

We returned for the fourth year, and have never been disappointed. A good varied menus, they are willing to let you share plates,two of our group shared a pasta dish and it was still too big for them. There beef is excellent and the wine list impressive.

Great atmosphere and a couple of cracking dishes that the locals always go back for, being the pork belly and duck. Just brilliant! Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food, wine list is extensive and suits the various dishes. We were served by Amber who impressed us with her friendliness, knowledge of the food, location and the wines.

You are correct, the Pork and Duck, both free range, are our most popular dishes. Thank you for mentioning Amber, staff always appreciate being acknowledged for doing a good job. More
