My husband and I eat here a fair amount as it's just around the corner so we can easily walk and enjoy a bottle of wine. We've also taken varying friends and family there over the years. The food has ALWAYS been excellent and plentiful and the welcome warm. Everyone we've taken has commented on how reasonably priced it is and how nice the food is. At times the service can seem a bit rushed with little gap between courses but we've certainly never felt pushed to leave and often stay after the meal to finish drinks and chat. As for not being child friendly, I couldn't care less!!! I hate going out for an adult evening surrounded by other people's out of control horrors running round, screaming and generally being a pain at hours way past a reasonable bed time!

We had a wonderful meal here, in this old school house, converted into a restaurant. Excellent food, my partner said he had the best pheasant he had ever eaten, there and he's eaten a good many in his life! Lovely friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere. Not to be missed if you are visiting this area.

An excellent night out in every respect. Our taxi home was late and the staff were really accommodating despite having to stay open just for the two of us. Good menu, good food in old school house. Been before and definitely will go again.

Visited the Schoolhouse with friends to celebrate my special birthday, large party and the food was excellent. well presented and the service given was to a high standard. We love going on a Wednesday, the menu has such a selection of variety of meals you couldn't fail to find something for everyone. We love it and will be going back soon.
