The food was lovely. The corn fed chicken I had was slightly on the small side, but what a beautiful tasting chicken and the garlic butter was a great compliment to the chicken. The staff were friendly and welcoming to us.

I met up with a colleague for a light lunch and a catchup. A word of warning - it can get busy so if you are pushed for time check bookings in advance. The choice of food is good (from light bits to full meals)...More

Good advise with booking - we have so many "walk-ins" some services it is hard to judge how busy we will be and how long service will take. Yes, areas of the bar are dog friendly - please let us know if you want to...More

We visited to look at it as a possible venue for a forthcoming college reunion. Limited menu lacking in wide appeal. Good quality food but limited amounts and high cost. Average service. On paying tried to charge us for things we never had having confused...More

I am sorry about the mix up with the bills, I trust it was resolved satisfactorily. Your other comments surprise and disappoint me and certainly do not represent our usual feedback. However, we are never complacent and your remarks will be discussed with the team...More

Thank you for the positive remarks regarding your visit - much appreciated. As regards staff levels - very hard for us to know how many staff will be required on a particular service. It is not infrequent for a service where perhaps 14 people have...More

I am disappointed when I read that food was served anything other than hot. I am truly sorry that this happened. I understand the staff completely re-made your meals and the feed back, at the time, was then positive. Portion sizes are difficult to judge...More
