I can't fault Deesons. I've been here several times and the food is always lush. I've even taken back ideas for meals that we have tried at home.

Superb food cooked to perfection. I have been here many times and the menu is seasonal and the food locally sourced. Great waiters and waitresses who can discuss the meals and advise on wine etc. Fairly expensive but you get good value for money.

Lovely restaurant with a great setting, ambience and welcoming friendly staff. We arrived for dinner at 6pm so had the set menu of 3 courses for £18. The duck main course was sublime.
