Sunday lunch, three of us had roasts which were above average. My wife's Bass was a very small portion and Asian stir fry veg a little tasteless. The staff manly young girls were efficient and friendly. I felt that the tables we sat at were a little too close to other diners. All in all a pleasant experience, but not... More

I believe my friends and I were having a meal the same day as the previous person with the poor review. If this was the same lady,she was ever so rude to the manager and his staff,and from the look of the photo provided,it would seem there wasn't much food left on the plate to return and complain about. I... More

This was my second visit - The food was absolutely perfect and we were cared for throughout by the very friendly and charming staff. Upon leaving, we were cautioned about the icy roads. Lots of gluten-free options. I will be returning here regularly!

As such a large group were given our own area which was a pleasant surprise. Loved the decor and general ambience. Service was fabulous- Chloe our excellent waitress was... More

Came here for an early Christmas meal with my mum. Encouraged by the reviews saying it had changed ownership. The food was super. My mum had the roast chicken, I had the vegetarian Wellington. Service fantastic, and very friendly. The decor is also so much nicer now. Highly recommended. Well done. Keep it up.

I've been here twice now to eat off the vegan menu. Four options for each course is almost unheard of! My most recent meal (veg parcels and a chocolate parfait) was one of the nicest vegan means I've had outside a dedicated veggie restaurant. Had to email to get hold of the menu and pre-order with 48 hours notice but... More
