We called in last night, without booking, and luckily they had a table available for us upstairs. The pheasant I had was lovely and my wife was pleased with her mushroom risotto. The kids seemed pleased with their options also. All in a good choice!

Had a lovely meal here on New Years Eve. The food was faultless, extremely well presented and all three courses tasted delicious. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Thank you for a great New Years Eve, we would definitely come back again!
