Booked a table for 2 on a Sunday evening. Arrived early for a drink sat outside in the evening sunshine very pleasant. Seated at our table Service was attentive but certainly not in your face. Good selection of options on the menu. Nice warm bread and oils and butter to get you in the mood for the main attraction to come. starters very good and with excellent flavour combinations. Main course wow venison cooked just as requested perfect plate of food. My better half had the Tuna and again a faultless dish. Dessert well it would have been rude not to again faultless. So In both my and my wife opinion An excellent meal superb food combinations well cooked with professional service.

We arrived before the restaurant was open and had to wait 15 minutes. No problem with that. Our order was taken. Almost 30 minutes for 1 starter to arrive. Between starter and main courses there was a further long delay, and when the 2 mains arrived, one was wrong (chicken instead of sea bass). Both were returned to the kitchen and another delay ensued. The meals eventually arrived, by which time my "grilled haloumi salad" was spoiled by having sat around for so long. The dessert, a deconstructed banoffee, was awful. The point was that the inordinate delays that occurred were despite our being the only ones in the restaurant. None of the food served matched the reputation of the restaurant nor our expectations.

It reminded me of the pub in the film American Werewolf in London.
Really nice and quiet ambience.
Menu was varied enough and not too extensive to make choices difficult.
This place was recommended to us by a couple who had eaten there before.
Food was nice enough but not exceptional.
The service was prompt and friendly.
For 2 starters, 2 main courses and a bottle of red wine we paid £110.

Isolated but worth the visit.
Food quality exceptional. Looks nothing from outside but clean and fairly modern interior

Thoroughly enjoyed a very fine meal here recently with the widow of a deceased past work colleague. Frankly, every aspect was faultless which is very rare these days in my opinion - well done indeed !
The service was extremely efficient & pleasant, with nothing too much trouble, however trivial - how refreshing !
I look forward to coming again soon !
