Wonderful in every way, from the complimentary glass of pink fizz to the sharing plate of delicious puddings.

Superb food with unobtrusive, efficient and friendly service in a relaxed setting. We were a party of 11 and all of us were very pleased and can't wait to go back. Top quality cooking with finest local ingredients. Tender beef, cooked to perfection, as was everything we had.

we had booked this restarauntas a treat for the six of us, when we entered the restaraunt my sister was told we could not go into the lounge for pre meal drinks as it was full, this was very dissapointing as there was only four people there. We had our drinks at the table and orderd our meals, even though it was a set menu the food was outstanding.
i requested we had our sweet in the lounge and was told initially no as there were people going to have coffee there, i was annoyed this time and said i thought it was unfair, the waitress relented and let us have our cheese and biscuits there.

This establishment was and remains a bit of a mystery to me. There are plus points but a number of minus ones, as well. It is a mystery to me why, instead of being able to relax on the confortable settees in the lounge area, to make our menu choices, we had to go straight to our table in the conservatory - bypassing the more intimate inner dining room? That, of course, was after finding the entrance which was shrouded in darkness, off a major unlit road. Some lighting would both enhance the ambience and help with safety. The mystery continues, as you have to find the parking area and restaurant entrance in poor light conditions. A daylight reconnaisance might be adviseable prior to a winter visit.
The approach here is the use of an inclusive menu at a fixed price, albeit lacking the range of choices shown in the restaurant flyer.
A selection of nibbles on the table was followed by a delightful amuse bouch. Wine was chosen from an extensive list ,which was in stark contrast to the selection of beers available. Bread, one small piece each (how expensive can it be?), was brought out and devoured enthusiastically. Starters were both delicious and showed originality, one with mullet, mussels and shrimp. Also on offer were scallops with cannelloni beans. Main courses revealed, sea bass, fillet steak and belly pork. Again the quality was good, but why no steak knives or mustard on offer? That said the steak was tender and cooked as ordered. Puddings again showed originality with many home made elements, such as a hot Welsh cake contrasted by a chilled sorbet and catalan cream.
The service was attentive but, on times, a little over enthusiatic. There is a high noise level in the conservatory and I caught more than an ocassional wiff of hot oil, from the kitchen.

The couple who run the establishment are wonderful and the food is second to none. £35 for a three course meal with appetizers isn't bad considering the quality of the ingridients and service is excellent. The best food I have ever tasted.
