“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Have walked past this place loads of times and never noticed it was there! Big mistake. This is a first class restaurant with wonderful food and excellent, attentive but not over the top service. Can't wait to go again so whatever you do dont miss this one.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

We ate here on Friday night 6/6/14 and the food is very high quality. We started with a seafood sharing platter which consisted of King prawn and scallop skewers, crevettes, smoked salmon, prawns Marie-rose, lemon zest mayonnaise, wholemeal bread and was delicious. My wife and I both had the same main of Fillet of Yorkshire beef, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, French mustard, brandy, cream and the meat was cooked to perfection. We did not have enough room for a desert so finished with coffees. The restaurant was very busy and the staff coped very well, even giving my wife a clean knife within ten seconds of her dropping it on the floor. All in all a great night we great food.

“Good food, good portions, good wine, good prices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

A delicious meal from the Farmer's set menu (£15 for 2 courses, £20 for 3). I had a delightfully pink lamb's liver with cep jus which was gamey and melt in the mouth. The assiette of desserts at £8.95 is well worth it as we shared it between 2 of us and our portions were bigger than the singular desserts! Could have done without the starter to be honest as I got 4 pieces of liver as well as my own mash and veg (hard to find now-a-days). Good bottles of wine available for £15 as well as carafes. Rest of the menu looked inviting with mains around the £16 mark.
Toilets slightly confusing as one male member of our party ended up using the ladies!
Slightly forgetful and over-zealous service which brings it down from Excellent but atmosphere, building and space all great. A true gem for Retford as it's sadly lacking in many other choices.
