We were greeted with an anniversary card on the table and shortly after we sat down my wife was given a lovely bunch of flowers. The service was outstanding - friendly, welcoming and courteous and the food was... More

Went here for lunch with two families. Good food, prompt and friendly service, very welcoming to our children, excellent value, generous portions - even for the children's menu, appeared rightly popular... They made a very good bloody mary cocktail to exact specifications!!

My friend and I recently visited the stepping stone for a drink. We ordered our alcoholic beverages only to have a certain member of staff be rude to us. We showed our id to prove our age only to have him say to us that we look about 12 (we're 18) and made snarky comments about us to other people... More

Lunch meals which we tried and loved were fish and chips, sausage and mash with onion gravy and fish pie. For dinner we had ribs and beef and Guinness pie, lovely. We... More

Went for dinner last night with family and whilst the food was good, we all felt that it was overpriced. On the upside, service was good and the place itself was nice.
