Me and my husband visited for a belated Valentine's meal. We had six different dishes between us and everything was lovely. My husband's fillet steak was perfect. It's so good to know we have somewhere so lovely locally. A real gem.

My good lady decided to treat me for a nice meal out. We booked the waterside after seeing the reviews on trip advisor. On arrival on a quiet Friday night we were warmly greeted by the staff and shown promptly to our tables. The use of the extra heaters was welcoming as the venue can be a bit cold. Food... More

Great food and staff - will definitely go again when next in the area. All food cooked to order, beautifully presented, very tasty and not over seasoned. All 3 courses and muse bouche of soup were delightful.

Had a wonderful day with the family yesterday. Food was beautiful . Service amazing . I didn't want a Christmas lunch so I asked if they could do me a steak instead . Don't think they do steaks normally but they did one and it was the best steak I've ever eaten . Highly recommend

Visited for a company Christmas lunch. On entry we were met with a small but interesting range of draft beers. The wine list was somewhat depleted because there had been a Christmas party the evening before. The ambiance was a little lacking, but this wasn’t helped by the fact that we were the only party there. This isn’t the restaurant’s... More
