We went here for a meal on Valentine's evening. The food was nice but nothing exceptional and the service was very slow indeed even though there were not many people dining that evening. We are not impatient people but we had slowly sipped our whole bottle of wine by the time our food arrived.

I was on the Floor all evening from our first party booking of 16 at Six pm and checked on all diners and drinkers on what was - from what I saw and our takings say - a busy Valentines Night. I am so sorry that you felt the service was slow - it was paced to allow couples to... More

We arrived and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. We walked through the entrance and it just felt friendly. There were a few parties but we were still seated straight away and after ordering the food came and it was delicious. We are on a bit and they made us feel welcome. Will definitely be going back again

Driven past the end of this road many times and chugged past on a narrow boat. Tonight we took the plunge. A fascinating building, with a small but well chosen menu. Well prepared and good size portions. Would love to visit again in the summer.
