“Amazing value”

I had the £12 2 course meal. Smoked salmon and trout, salad and new potatoes. Followed by the best pannacotta I have ever had! All the food served including items from the main menu looked brilliant. Lovely atmosphere with friendly staff. We will definitely be going back again.

“Fantastic food and fantastic service”

We arrived at a busy time and we’re still quickly seated. The staff were delightful and the service was excellent. They answered any questions and, if time allowed, the manager came and had a chat. The food itself was beautiful. I had the burger which was surprisingly delicious and the rest of our group’s meals were to the same standard. The portions were great value for the price and the desert was as exquisite as the main course. Would recommend to anyone in the area
