Food great, service terrible.   Waited an hour for starter. Constantly having to ask when we going to be served. At one point all 3 waitresses (using the term loosely) were behind the bar on their phones. When trying to get the bill one asked another to get it for us, to which she replied no I'm doing the glasses!

We had the steak and ale pudding and the Cajun chicken, both of which were outstanding. The waitress was polite and helpful and our drinks order was brought promptly. There was... More

We've been here many times before but the new management have improved the restaurant, which i didn't think was possible! Sunday lunch was delicious and amazingly good value; the manager 'Jane' and her waitresses are friendly, polite and very attentive. This made a spontaneous Sunday Lunch a very pleasant experience. The sunshine flooding the very private rear garden was so... More

We were told we had to arrive at 7 pm instead of 7:30 pm to ensure we got served on time. It still took 45 mins to get our ordered food, it then arrived in a piece meal fashion and not for everyone in the same timeframe which is unacceptable for a family meal. We have not been to this... More

They have a staggered 2 or 3 course lunch menu and some had starters which were well received others went for... More
