    We booked a table in good faith via the website only to be told when we arrived that the kitchen was closed for the whole week. All that was required was a note on the website to that effect!

    We had a lunchtime booking and were welcomed and served by a friendly young lady. The tables are set out a nice way so not close to other people. We had 4 different meals and we all enjoyed what we had. The portions were generous and the men had a steak meal and a ganmon egg and chips. Both said they were excellent. I had the scampi and my friend had a chicken selected from the lunchtime menu which she said was delicious. So all good Thank you

    Great atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. The food wasn’t as good as I expected but I think they were having an off day as all other reviews say it is excellent. I want to go back as it’s such a cool place to chill out in. I would recommend.

    So disappointed, one year between visits and was excited to return as had an excellent meal previously. Ordered the lasagna again as enjoyed it so much before but was half the size it used to be (I checked the photo I took last year to make sure I hadn’t remembered incorrectly) and you now have to pay £3 extra for the garlic bread that used to come with it and is supposed to be sourdough bread but was the thickness of a pancake, chewy and not good at all. Others said meals were ok not great, only a handful of chips with burgers. I can understand menu prices being increased but not as well as meals being made smaller.

    When we walked in on a Friday evening it was very loud in the bar and we thought Oh No. However we found a table in the corner of the restaurant and it was fine. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was very tasty. I went there for the veggie fish/halloumi and chips and was not disappointed!

    A last minute booking didn't disappoint. First class menu, attention, food. Chef went out of his way to make sure I was happy, as I didn't have much of an appetite. He let me have children's portions. Well Done Sir. Apple/Rhubarb Crumble to die for. Will definately be back soon.
