I am one of a small group who have visited on several occasions. I contacted Jo, whom I believe is the owner to ask if he would consider opening on a Monday night for an 18th celebration meal for my daughter, the one night they are usually closed. A number of her friends were coming and we needed somewhere local and inexpensive, (as well as adult family) as most of them were still at college and funds were limited. We also needed a menu that suited all tastes - adults, teenagers, vegetarians etc., etc., !! Given we were a party of around 20, all needing serving at roughly the same time, we agreed to pre order and Jo asked that we try and limit the number of options in each course to three. Have you ever tried pinning a bunch of teenagers down to what they want to eat two weeks in advance!! Did the best we could and I hoped and prayed I could sweet talk Jo into accepting the requests. He sure did!! Further, as many of the guests had ordered two desserts from the online menu, which are no longer offered, (gateaux and cheesecake, apparently due to lack of demand), rather than ask me to find alternatives, he had them made especially. I can guarantee they were freshly made in the restaurant as one of the chefs was making them when I called in the day before - fabulous. On the night itself, Jo was away, however all the staff couldn't have been more helpful and made the night really memorable. Not only did they open just for us, they let me in late afternoon and staff helped me decorate with banners and balloons etc., stored the birthday cake, set out the seating the way I wanted, to ensure teenagers and adults could mix as they wanted, put the candles on the cake when ready and carried it in for us, took photographs, asked if we wanted to take our own music in, can I say more?? Oh yes, And..... the food was absolutely fabulous, no moans from anyone, everyone got what they wanted and a thoroughly good time was had by all. Highly recommended. Thanks a bunch to all the staff and Jo for a great night.
Already booked for another meal next week with friends and planning a further visit a couple of weeks after that. What more can I say!!
