After reading reviews off trip advisor, booked well in advance a table in the window overlooking the front.

As it was our first wedding anniversary we were really looking forward to having a really romantic meal in a lovely setting.

We knew as soon as we arrived this wasn't going to be the case, they had squashed a table for two in between two larger tables.

We opted to eat at another table rather than being squashed. We sat and watched the staff try and seat two other couples at the table they had reserved for us.

Both couples refused, one couple went else where.

On top of this the food was very average, definitely not up the standard we would expect from a top restaurant.

Disappointed, won't rush back.

Booked a table for 1930 (a specific table number). Turned up on time and the table was taken - no apologies! Chose to eat outside, given menus and then left alone for 15 minutes - had to go in and ask if someone could come serve us - other tables were complaining of missing food or drink! My meal turned up but without the slaw - when I asked they said sorry it had run out and then said they had replaced with salad - would have been good to be told and asked!! To be fair the food was ok but the service was appalling - there was lots of apologies but for me it was too late - it does not take much effort to get it right and be attentive! Sorry but would not eat here again unless the waitresses were different!

My lovely wife phoned and booked a table for a Friday evening as we were spending a long weekend in this beautiful village. However after numerous traffic delays we had to re-arrange for a much later time. So glad we eventually ate here as the food was very good. It was very busy but the staff were professional and cheery. There was a nice atmosphere and we decided to eat here again the following night. Just as good. We would certainly go back when in the area.

The food was very good but the service staff was neglectful. We arrived righty at dinner time and were one of the first to be seated but others were attended to before us.
