Went on a Saturday evening and didn't book. On arrival we were greated by pleasant staff who showed us to a table and took our drinks order. We were impressed with the choice of food on the menu. There was a good atmosphere with music playing at just the right volume. We had a pasta and a lasagne dish and a side order of polenta 'chips ' which were amazing. Only downside was that the Peronie beer was out of stock.
Will definitely visit again.

We sent back a lasagne that was overcooked and did not look palatable. Then one of our guests received the offending item back. When pointing this out we were told that there was no more lasagne.

Steak was more like a minute steak - too thin and overcooked. The white wine should be avoided at all costs.

There is no garnish with the food at all, not even a piece of parsley!

This is the second time I have visited and on both occasions the food has been appalling, I will not give this another try.

We ate at this restaurant as a party of some 20 or more people the night before our son's wedding. The food was good, honest, freshly cooked and tasty. The service was friendly and excellent, with attention to detail to make us feel really well looked after.
To get so many meals out and satisfy so many people was a feat in itself and it was all good !

A good restaurant for a coffee or lunch/dinner, with an Italian feel. Food can be excellent but depends which chef is on duty. Superb New Year's Eve menu at a bargain price. Lovely ambiance especially in summer where you can eat al fresco on the patio with the stream below. Opening hours vary so always phone first to confirm times.

We have eaten twice here now. Second time to see if it had improved - it hasn't. Our starter of garlic bread with cheese resembled a piece of toast. The main course of fungi pizza with extra ham and olives cost over £12 and was virtually tasteless.
