“Great for a special meal”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

My wife and I have eaten here a number of times. The food is always of the highest quality and the service polite and efficient. They used to have one issue - very bright lighting - but they've sorted that out. Hard to fault it. It is quite expensive, but it manages to deliver good value.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 19 May 2012

Cant be faulted, the food was just stunning, it tasted as good as it looked.. Terrine to start, with toast and a celeriac remoulade, i asked for a little more celeriac and i happily receive a healthy portion, for main, The best fried chicken, (who would have thought, fried chicken could be sooooo yummy, i came away with the recipe:o) which came with the lightest potato cake and delicious coleslaw.. It was extremely delicious and the selection of house wines complimented the food perfectly. Very reasonable prices and we will gladly drive the 90 minute round trip to come here again.. a true gem.

“Great food”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

Great food although expensive for Somerset. The chef was unhappy with our request for the duck not to be rare but it came cooked to our liking. Excellent wine list with many available in half bottles. A great find in a provincial town.

“Fantastic food and nice venue”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

I have eaten here a couple of times and haven't been disappointed.

The drinks menu is varied as is the food.

Staff are efficient and knowledgable about the menu.

Food is always presented beautifully and is extremely tasty.

If I had to criticise I would say thay it can be lacking in atmosphere if it is quiet, but then where isn't.

Not cheap but would definitely recommend for a special occassion.
