Food is nice but menu quite limited. Cocktails also delicious.
Booked a table for a party of 10, to which we paid a £50 deposit. When the bill arrived the deposit paid was not removed from the bill, staff were a bit non-chalant about it. So ensure to check and double check your bill if you're booking a large party.
Still a decent restauarant in nice surroundings. Will visit again.

We visited here for mothers day. The service was great, the food choices were brilliant and the atmosphere was lovely. We all really enjoyed our food which arrived fairly quickly and was cooked perfectly. Could not fault this place in any way. Real value for our money.

the food is good service can at times be a bit slow but probably due to attention to each customer. their chips and steak sandwiches with their own special sauce is really tastey. it can be a bit pricey but would visit again

Had lunch here with a couple of friends.Menu is average all the usual items,but nothing original.
Opted for tuna sandwich which was below par as heavy on mayo but light on tuna.
If hungry and nearby would drop in again however would not go out my way to return.
staff pleasant and attentive.
