Seated right away for our 7:30 reservation. Drink & food order taken quickly (not busy) but waited quite a time for food to arrive. But given the comfortable atmosphere we didn’t mind the wait.
The food was great. Two of us had the steak & mushroom pie; big pie & delicious. I had the sea bass, very nice. My daughter had the ham hock. The ham was tasty but she didn’t like the orange flavoured sauce on it (I agreed that it seemed wrong, but aside from that it was tasty).
Overall, very nice experience & we’ll be back!

Thank Shelly B

There seemed to be a problem with our booking and were sat in the bar while we waited for a table. We were eventually seated at a table after a member of our party chased it up. Had to wait a long time for starters to arrive and the same long delay for mains, meaning we did not eat mains until very late. It would have saved time to give menus while waiting in the bar area. No cucumber available for drinks and the lemon and lime was taken away before last orders.Staff were at times quite rude in their manner and not pleasant when we were asked to leave at closing time. Did not feel welcome and will not be returning.

Staff very friendly on arrival. I sat by the fire having a cosy drink of hot chocolate and working on my computer. I left my half drunk hot chocolate and went to the toilet. As I’m on my own I had to take my bags with me but left some paperwork and a pen on the table to show I was still there. Walked back to see people sitting at the table, my drink and paperwork gone. They presumed I’d left and had cleared up throwing my paperwork away.... After eventually finding my paperwork they offered me a free drink. But because their internet is poor (in spite of ringing in advance and checking they had WiFi) I didn’t bother staying and left. Such a shame as really lovely place but I don’t feel welcome being a lone woman if I can’t even leave my drink on the table to pop to the toilet!
