Good food and lovely staff, the lamb was so tender and was a massive portion! The fish dish we had was also Georgeous. Sorbet dessert was nice. Only downside was it was so quiet, no music nothing just silence so was a bit awkward at times when other diners were quiet, we found ourselves whispering

Appalling meal with supermarket sliced bread and spraycan cream. None of the ingredients were fresh apart from the token bit of salad covered in a greasy dressing. Stodgy pie, unimaginative veg, just because this is in the provinces doesn't mean it can get away with this overpriced mediocre food.

We've been here a few times and the food is always excellent, we especially like the fillet steak, it's delicious. We will be back again very soon on our next visit to Lancaster.

We've walked past here many times saying we must give it a try. At last we did, and what a revelation. There were two soups on offer at lunchtime, spicy parsnip, and tomato and red pepper. We opted for one of each, mine being the parsnip, which was, as the name suggests, nice. On trying the tomato and pepper I... More

I've been before and found the place pleasant with a good menu. Saturday afternoon was evidently too much for them though. Several tables were left dirty and there were peas on the leather sofas and floor. Our food was good but the waitress must've been quite new and lacked pace and professionalism. Wouldn't rush back.

Having held my Daughters 21st party in the nice bar. I would highly recommend this as a venue. All the staff were helpful and friendly. And looked after us all night, and during the Day when we were setting up for the Party they were brilliant. The food for the buffet was fantastic and there was plenty of it. Thanks... More

This is a lovely restaurant. The décor is lovely, unusual and bright. We had two three course meals and we enjoyed every mouthful. The staff are attentive and yet not intrusive and there is plenty of room between the tables, so you don't feel cramped and squashed in. The lovely tall windows let in lots of natural light and give... More
