Dropped in for lunch en route to visit friends. Very friendly welcome from staff and offered choice of table in either main restaurant or bar area. There is a conservatory dining area, however, all tables had been reserved. This did not hinder splendid views over the hills and beyond from the table we chose in the main restaurant. Wide range...

Visited with friends and family, greeted with"your table's in the corner" and a nod of the waiter's head. Portions smaller than expected and presentation poor, won't be back.

Below average meal, small portions, high prices.Lack of effective air con leaves this restaurant stinking of chip pan fat. Worst part of the night was when we came to leave and exited into a pitch black car park.This resulted in a vehicle in our party brushing with a wall causing damage to the vehicle. It was noticed by another party... More
