We have had several meals here as the food is high quality and the service polished. No uninterested youngsters plonking food down here. Bartellas has been decorated to a high standard and it is always a pleasure to dine here. The goats cheese souffle and the king prawn starter were very good and plenty of them. Lamb cutlets always tasty... More

Nice restaurant and friendly Staff unfortunately Food doesn't live up to the prices charged. Food is pub grub at Posh prices. Fillet steak uses poor cuts of meat, and there is no finesse for the mix grill its no better than a pub breakfast.
