went here today for the first time. Really nice venue and good food. very relaxed atmosphere and we had a whole room to ourselves. Staff efficient and pleasant.
Plenty of parking, lovely bar area.
Only one criticism the venue felt cold and the radiators were not on

“Superb”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

This place is quite simply hard to fault. The staff are always well drilled and attentive without being too fussy. The food is always wonderfully prepared and presented. It's slightly pricey and they don't tend to 'do deals' but they don't really need to because even on a Weds night they are pretty busy. Highly receommended.

“Friendly and good service”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

We went met up with friends after being recommended to try this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. A very friendly welcome and order taken at our leisure. The meals came well presented and perfectly cooked - we will defiantly return in the future

“Lovely food, sadly lacking in atmosphere”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We visited here a few months ago. To be honest, despite living in the area for many years had driven past and never really noticed it.

Does seem to have funny opening times and is often closed or looks closed when driving past. Don't open on a Sunday lunchtime apparently which seems strange ?

Our meal here was absolutely delicious and the staff were very friendly and welcoming although the restaurant was quite empty and lacked a bit of atmosphere.

Very stylishly decorated inside and I would say would make a perfect venue for a wedding or special gathering. (Not sure if they do wedding parties so obviously check first).

Will definitely be visiting again soon.

8/10

“Relaxed Evening”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

We spent a very nice evening here with over 20 friends. We pre booked or food and organised a pre dinner drink on arrival. All was delt with by very polite friendly staff. Once seated our starter, main, and pudding were served very quickly and efficiently . We used the standard menu , all was very tasty and at a reasonable price. We had a small room off the main area which made the evening a little more special.
