The food here was absolutely delicious. First time we'd been, and will definitely go again. I had the duck and it was a whole leg with a yummy sauce. Our other 3 people had the venison which they said was delicious too.

The food was excellent i ate everything on the plate and I'm quite a fussy eater, had a very good atmosphere - even had a lady singing.

Fabulous meals. Hubby had the twice cooked duck and I had the prime beef steak, both lovely! Definately need to book in advance as very popular, on the night we went a Thursday and very stormy night - the place was still packed!

Love the food here, If you like Duck then you need to try theirs. Beautiful, melt in your mouth. Waitress's to me seem a tad to young or need additional training, maybe. But this place is well worth a visit. Love it.

Tasty food with a menu which often changes. If you ring before hand they can organise food to meet allergy requirements without hassle. Restaurant can be a bit cramped and noisy. Most times the waiting staff are great. I have had terrible service on one...More
