“Try the cream tea”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We decided to try the tea room last Saturday and ended up having a cream tea. The scones were to die for and if you wanted extra cream it was not a problem. All I can say is if the rest of the food is as good you can say goodbye to your waistlines! The owners are very friendly and cannot do enough for you so give it a go. We will be going back very soon.

“Continues to impress”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

It was Kevin's birthday but he still had to cook lunch for us!

I had the chicken and ham pie always excellent. My wife had the braised lamb with dumplings. The dumplings were to die for!

I had apple and plum crumble for pub - super too.

“Excellent Spanish Evening”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

We much enjoyed the speciality Spanish evening. The food was very good indeed, the service excellent, we had the table for the evening. There is no licence, so took our own wine and there was no extra charge. Overall a very friendly restaurant run by a husband and wife team who ensure an excellent all round culinary experience. It is a joy to eat food that has been cooked by proper chef. We now look forward to the next monthly special evening based on Indian food.

“impressive meal”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

The French evening was so good they ran it twice and it sold out on both occasions!

Kevin certainly knows how to get flavours to work together. The onion soup was excellent and the beef bourguignonne [well that's how Delia spells it!] was even better plus lovely pud for only £20!

“Best Breakfast Around!”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Not into greasy fry-ups? Then this is the place for you! Excellently prepared food and great coffee. I had the vegetarian breakfast and my wife had poached egg and bacon on toast - there are 12 options on the breakfast menu so I'm sure there is something for everyone. This is only our second visit but we will be treating ourselves more often!
