    Food and service was amazing, and very reasonable prices for the quality of food. We had the best sticky toffee pudding that any of us had ever tasted before!! Cannot fault this restaurant at all!

    Unfortunately a change of chef has had a negative affect on the food presentation and quality, prices haven’t changed so very poor value for money. I’d compare it with a bad day at a beefeater which is such a shame as two previous visits with the original chef were very good indeed. We had originally recommended it to many , now would definitely not. I hope things improve.

    This is the second time we have eaten here. We were really blown away the first time, but we were very disappointed on this occasion. The lamb was pink and very fatty, and all of the meat on each of our meals was cut so thick and wedgelike. Also, the mushroom starter was extremely chewy, hard and did not taste of mushroom! We didn't bother with a pudding. Perhaps it was a different chef or the fact that it was at the very end of a Sunday serving but was definitely not value for money.

    Fantastic food and a lot of it! The pork belly starter is superb and the main course is very, very generous in its size. The beef melts in your mouth and the lamb is really well seasoned, with a great Yorkshire pudding and lovely pigs in blanket - we ordered a side of these and six full size sausages in bacon turned up - brilliant!! The serving staff are very pleasant, very attentive without being annoying and a decent wine list that caters for all tastes and budgets. Will be returning soon and would recommend to anyone who wants a really good Sunday roast

    First visit after several recommendations. Very impressed. Good ambience, staff polite, friendly and professional. Food excellent, well-cooked (Sunday lunch), imaginatively presented with very generous portions. An extensive wine list, very reasonably priced. Overall, good value for money. I brought friends who enjoyed the experience immensely and I shall certainly return.

    First visit and delighted with our evening. Well prepared food served with style; lovely room if a bit noisy due to large group having a celebration on the evening we visited … perhaps some plants or carpet to quieten the room ? Otherwise a very happy addition to local offerings and we will be back soon - well done all 👍🏼
