“Nice surrounding”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

The restaurant itself is very nice. The staff attentive. We thought that the meals were expensive for what you got (main £15.95, afters £6) Portion size was on the small size with hardly any vegetables.

We had oven roasted rump of lamb cooked pink. There were two thin slices of carrot and two thin sticks of asparagus and a small pattern of purée. Potato was a round of fondant. The lamb was tender but a bit over pink and difficult to cut with the knife provided.

The sweet, sticky toffee pudding, was good.

The drinks were expensive.

Considering what we paid a little disappointing.

“Fine Dining”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

My wife and I pre booked our dinner at this restaurant, following good advice on Tripadvisor.
We were not disappointed. Great food, pleasant ambience and attentive service all combined to make this a memorable night.
As it happened, there was no need to pre book for this particular night, but I would suggest you still do this, as I can imagine it will be very popular at weekends.

The owner was friendly and the waitress was extremely helpful, nothing was a bother - as it should be in all restaurants, (but sometimes is not.....).

Highly recommended if you are a fine diner and appreciate good service.

“Convenient and reliably good”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Consistently good food and friendly service over many years. Excellent value for money. Comfortable surrounding. Eaten lunch and dinner on several occasions, reliably good.
Lower priced meals available early evening, convenient for dining prior to cinema or theatre.
Pleasant atmosphere. House wine good.
