Lucky enough to go twice in a week and great food and service on both occasions. Yes it is more expensive than anywhere else in town but it's by far the best and in the great scheme of things is very good value.

Yet another delicious take away from Vennells. Mushroom risotto. Cooked to perfection and even with a 20 minute drive it was as good as served in the restaurant. Laura’s suggestion of a green salad on the side completed our meal. Thank you once again Jon...More
