Visited randomly, without prior knowledge of the place, by walking in from the street. Greeted by the restaurant owner/head chef at the bar, who was friendly and hospitable, explained the menu and told us everything about the facilities, such as a newly opened bar downstairs (separate from the main restaurant). Kitchen is an open type, but it is not intrusive,... More

We arrived just as the "early bird" offer was went out of time. The waitress was quite happy to take our order and give us the offer. Our starters of mushrooms in a garlic sauce arrived promptly and was very good. Our mains of chicken breast followed equally promptly, and equally acceptable. After a suitable pause we ordered puds, again... More

We had a lovely 'hot' meal. Service good. Business can't be owned by the waitress who turned other customers away at 8pm when open until 10.00pm. I would have been furious!

Decided to eat here while staying in the area. When we arrived there were 9 tables occupied all of which were being waited on by one lady who didn't appear to be enjoying her job very much and certainly didn't look happy to see any new customers (we had booked). The menus were shoved unceremoniously on to the table before... More

We didn't book this restaurant, but they were able to seat us on a Saturday night, no problem. There was only one lady working front of house who did everything from working behind the bar, to clearing the tables, but she was very pleasant and friendly. There was quite a large party in before us who had already ordered their... More

We ate here on a Sunday night, and the food was excellent, cooked nicely, and the flavours were good. However the service was awful and ruined the evening. On arrival we were waved in the general direction of a table, and were hassled to order our food quickly. It felt like they wanted us in and out as quickly as... More

Dined here last Thursday. Despite drab outward appearance an excellent restaurant inside with real chefs working in a hectic kitchen, hard working waitress too. Prawn cocktail, rollmop herring, steak and chicken from early bird menu were delightfully cooked and served, large quantities and along with 2 glasses of wine, the bill was a very reasonable £47. Restaurant was quite full... More

We enjoyed our meal, we where a little unsure if they did an evening meal and it would be good to perhaps advertise this instead of the function room as it says lunch menu then early meal so it leaves you unsure especially when the place is empty.

Had dinner there early one evening last week prior to the cinema. I took advantage of the salmon and chardonnay deal while my hubby had a pie. Both meals were really nice, although it's a good thing his came with veg because mine was just salmon and potato. It was perfectly cooked, although I asked for no sauce and yet... More
