Enjoyed a good meal here recently. The menu isn't amazing but the food is wholesome and well cooked. Perfectly fine wine list. The room is fairly small so if you need a big airy space look elsewhere. The staff are attentive but not pushy.

Impromptu lunch with my wife and by chance a table was available. Lovely food and service and will definitely come back. Excellent value for money.

How many times must one ask whether something is gluten free? The mushroom starter states it is GF, but only if you double confirm do you find out that although marked as GF, the spring rolls are not. However, they were very tasty. As a...More

Tries hard, but invariably fails. I have eaten here twice now and there will not be third time. The food tries too hard to be fancy and it doesn't work. Both times were disapointing. Staff are nice, but could do with training - it's not...More
