“All round quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

Easy review. First impressions, great. Decor etc, great. Service incl welcome, great. Food, great.

Simply a top place to eat. Going back soon for a group fondue evening as can bank on them doing it really well. Would have given them 5 stars but had a relatively simple lunch so saving that for after the fondue...hopefully.

For those who want to know more I had boeuf bourguignon and sticky toffee pudding. With a glass of fizz obvs!

“Good food, well priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

Enjoyed a very good meal here on Sunday. We had three excellent starters, a delicious guinea fowl terrine, a lovely crunchy and creamy mushroom arancini, and a very tuna carpaccio (which was quite asian in style, with soy and ginger, so not sure it really went with the menu but very good anyway).

Mains were also good - particularly the roast pork which was extremely succulent and flavoursome.

Came in at about £70 for all 3 of us, including wine, which is good value for this high standard of bistro cooking.

“great food in family friendly ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Such a warm welcome from Paula and the team. Room full of character with individual touches. Fish and chips on special today but had Steak previously and plenty of choice over three courses . Service exceptional. Reasonably priced. Well worth a visit!

“Heavenly Tastes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

I went here with a group of friends for an evening meal and thoroughly had a super time. There was a wonderful warm atmosphere about the place with friendly and very accommodating staff. The food was so so delicious. I have not had lamb shank done so wonderfully as I have had done here with a jus to die for. It may be a little pricey but the taste of what I experienced was heaven sent. I was able to try spoonfuls from my other friends orders and all was Delicious with a capital D.
