this was recommended and rightly so; staff pleasant, food good, plenty time to sit and chat without being rushed from table.
went to back room 1st, so no board for specials, so had to ask, hard to retain as staff tell you details, as we left we saw board in front bar with details, handy to have 2 boards..

Thank Linda T

On a positive note we took your advice and now have a specials board in the bistro which we placed on the central pillar so thank you for your suggestion, and we look forward to seeing you again should you be in the area.

We didn't actually eat in the restaurant as it was fully booked but they found us a table in the bar.
I love great chowder and this ticked all the boxes. Looked amazing, velvety texture & great combination of flavours served with selection of home made breads. Range of options on the menu, reasonably priced. I had an issue with my main course, nothing to do with the quality of food, purely personal taste, but I was extremely impressed with how the managed handled the situation. Really glad we stopped here on our way home, will definitely visit again.

Dear Jacqueline R,
Thank you for your positive words. The kitchen team also thank you for the upbeat words especially relating to the Chowder. Inevitably occasionally items may not be to a persons own taste due to ingredients or way of cooking but we strive to find a quick and amiable solution. We look forward to playing host again sometime in the future.
Warm wishes

We had dinner here on August 15th. We booked a table only that day. As we have young kids we booked for 5:00pm. The service was excellent and the food was really nice too. The waitress whose name I should have got was excellent with the kids and she seemed to have a great rapport with the regular customers who came in while we were there. (she has brown hair in a ponytail) We all thought the food was delicious and alot of thought went into it's presentation. The price was surprisingly good too. We'll definitely be back. I'd highly recommend the place.
The only slight niggle was that another waitress started hoovering around the tables, including ours, while we were still at the table. Not a big deal but noisy and a little unexpected.

Dear Risteard69,
Thank you for your detailed and positive review. We are lucky here with the team we have in place as they all to be fair, have a great rapport with our local clientele and are a credit to the industry. The kitchen team thank you for your positive words. With regard to the Dyson handheld which we use in the bistro as it has carpet, may I apologise for its unintended interruption of your meal.

Me and my boyfriend booked a table here the first saturday night august. We had only walked in the door and were immediately welcomed by the owner mark.
Our table wasnt ready, which we didnt mind in the slightest, it was great to see a restaurant so busy, mark was very apologetic. 5 mins later and we were seated at our table. The menu was fantastic, great choice and great value. All Staff were so pleasant and helpful. I was very indecisive as to what to order as i was overwhelmed(good thing) by the choice, mark kindly talked me through the menu and gave his reccommendations.
portions are huge. Value is unbelievable.
We were so impressed with the overall experience, and will no doubt will be back.
