Visited on a Thursday evening. Lovely setting, welcoming atmosphere and that's where the positive comments end. My partner and I ordered a bottle of red wine and after a few minutes were advised it wasn't available. Ordered a 2nd and again told unavailable due to a change of menu the following day. The 3rd bottle of red wine thankfully was... More

We went here for a family birthday and the food was amazing. I had tomato and basil soup for starter which was lovely and roast beef for main. The meat was cooked beautifully with no fat and the Yorkshire was still slightly soft as opposed to crispy and over cooked. The roast parsnips were also the best I've had. The... More

We enjoyed the food we ordered. Both starters and mains of Halibut and Lamb were very nice, cooked well and full of flavour. The service on the other hand ... our server was very blunt and unwelcoming(short lady no name badge or introduction of her name). It seemed like she didn't want to be there. Looking around there wasn't much... More

We found this by place by chance and we`ll be going there again. Friendly service, decent glass of wine, comfortable seating and a very relaxed atmosphere. Great menu with lots of choice, plus a specials board. Our meal was excellent thanks.

Ordered drinks for myself and my partner for a quick drink before a dinner reservation at a nearby restaurant. Ordered the drinks and the bartender told me to be seated and he would bring the drink over. After 20 minutes I still hadn't received my drink. I let that same barman know; to my surprise he was rude and didn't... More
