“Very Good Food, Nice Atmosphere”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

Me and my partner visited here for easter weekend. The staff were very welcoming and polite and showed us to our table and provided menus. They quickly took our drinks order and gave us sufficient time to pick our food from the a la carte menu. The starters arrived in nice time and were cooked perfectly (calamari and garlic prawns) the main course was just as pleasing I chose the 18oz prime rib steak rare, it was cooked perfectly and lovely quality meat. My partner had the fish and chips which she said was very good. The desserts did not dissappoint either although most of the ice cream selection was not available. Overall the portion sizes were perfect, quality very good and high level of service. The bill for two people three courses each and two drinks was £66 which I dont think is bad at all considering I had the most expensive main course off the menu. The atmosphere was very nice and relaxed and made for an enjoyable evening. Only negative. Table was very wobbly :)

“Cracking Sunday dinner”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

Popped in on bank hol weekend, it was so busy but pre booked before. Not too much to put but had the roast beef dinner was absolutely superb, the best Sunday lunch around!! The mash is gorgeous - think they should give you more!! Mmm. I think I would have chicken another time as I had a bit of beef that was tough, but the rest of the dinner more than made up for it. Huge Yorkshire puddings and the roast potatoes are smashing. Big portions too, worth the money. Also had a sticky toffee pudding which was lovely - shared it which was good because if not it would be a bit too rich! Overall great, would go back for Sunday lunch!

“Not the best”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Starters were lovely, the Antipasti platter was amazing. Nice selection and tasted great.
However the main was a big let down, ordered the Italiano Pizza, meats were lovely on it, however this just had garlic oil on, which in my opinion is really just a garlic bread. As it was in the pizza section, one would assume it would have a cheese and tomato base. Got a New York Cheesecake for desert, which again was average over powered by a hell of a lot of fruit on it.
The music is terrible, after a while it did grate on all of us. Yes, you dont go to a restuarant for the music, but it was just a annoying background sound.
I have been here before and had one of the burgers which i could not fault.
Service was good though

“Super Sunday lunch”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

A group of 7 asked for a last minute booking for Sunday lunch. They managed to fit us in at 3pm which was great as it was very busy. The Sunday lunch menu was excellent value but best of all excellent quality. tasty and tender meat with the most enormous Yorkshire puddings. The staff were charming and didn't rush us at all. Great wine list and lovely atmosphere so all in all a great option for a special Sunday lunch
