4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

Enjoyed a well cooked and presented lunch in the cosy bar area on a quiet mid-week day. Good selection of gins and wines available by the glass. A sharing plate to start followed by a huge plate of fish and chips and rack of lamb cooked pink with seasonal vegetables, no room for dessert. Friendly staff. Well worth the drive... More

Well this place is certainly a hidden. Walked through the front door into a warm, light and airy dining room which has a welcoming and homely feel to it. Greeted by the friendly and cheerful staff. Looking at the menu I struggled to choose what to eat as it all looked delicious, but finally opted for the bread and olives... More

Excellent! Lovely lunch - the nicest meal I've had in a restaurant recently. Pigeon breast starter was perfect, followed by a delicious roast pork. The chef definitely knows his stuff as the whole meal (particularly the sprouts and broccoli) were absolutely spot on. Portion size was just right and excellent value for money. Quality through and through - thank you.... More

Food was nice but a bit pricey. Although the menu at first glance seems extensive, rather short on dishes I wanted to eat.

Went with friends for Saturday evening meal. First time back since re-opening. There was a large party in the dining room which seemed to have preferential treatment from the waitress. Main course I choose was rib-eye steak, this was very small, and came with about 20 chips, one mushroom and 1/2 of a tomato. (A few vegetables would not have... More

Fabulous !!! Used to be a favourite of ours, but has been closed for a while. New owners, excellent menu, lovely ambience.
