    Menu needs changing a little disappointed with food , sandwiches were good. but choice and value rather expensive for what you get for main meals so not so good. Last time I came had to hand back my main ox cheek overdone.

    Food and service was, as always, great. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for after all

    The food is normally top notch but struggled to cut the beef, so we asked for steak knives but still a struggle so we asked for a box to take home and gave up, vegetables and gravy were really good as was the Yorkshire pudding, It was a little strange that we did not have the option to have just 1 course and pay for the 2 and had to. Pre-order, I've just never heard of that before.. I am normally really impressed with the food and service, but Sunday was not its normal standard.... People arrived after us but were served first... and we had to wait quite a while before our ordered arrived and 1 hour and 15 mins for our deserts which were pre ordered with the main meal, I think we were forgotten, we gave them a gentle reminder after 55 mins and we were told it would be a couple more minutes., but was another 20.. I just felt a little disappointed considering the price of the meal.. However, the waitress deducted our first round of drinks as an apology, which was nice. I will continue to go for breakfast and brunch, but I don't think I will go for Sunday lunch again.. which is a shame, Felt awful as I took people with me as I recommended it so highly, and they were disappointed and said they wouldn't return.. We still left a tip as the waiter and waitress were really nice.. so not all bad..

    Due to two large groups, the noise level was not what I expected. The food and the service was excellent and good value for money.

    Enjoyed the ambience, decor and view. Staff attentive, polite and smart. Enjoyed the food. Only complaint would be the length of time it took for the food to arrive, particularly as it wasn’t that busy.

    Nice, fairly hefty prices for rather modest portion sizes but overall a very pleasant lunch with my mum.
