British Mediocrity. Food was ok - entirely as expected. Service was quite poor. An hour after ordering, our main course arrived, followed 20 minutes later by our starters.

Getting more water required numeroud requests.

To be fair, the restaurant was fairly busy and didn't charge for the starters or a round of drinks, but the waitress retreated into non-communication and clearly hadn't been paying attention.

Food was really tasty and vegan option was delicious. The servers were attentive and the ambience was relaxed. Would like to see a broader range of vegan options.

Good selection on the menu & specials - the chicken & bacon burger was lovely. But drinks overpriced - nearly £7 for the hedgerow cocktail - very expensive for such a tiny glass of prosecco with some elderflower cordial... wouldn't have ordered that if I had known it was going to be so small.

Nice enough but not amazing

Friendly staff, although we did have to ask 3 times for one of the drinks we had ordered. The food was tasty and came out quickly but was a little cold. Overall - was nice and we would probably go again, but could have been better.

Went for brunch and had the garden breakfast but asked for no mushrooms and another poached egg in it’s place which I did not get.

Staff were not very attentive and I had to keep getting their attention.

We enjoyed a really nice meal - the food was delicious - my only criticism is that my steak had not been rested and was cold - the cut of meat was good enough that I still enjoyed it and so didn’t complain. The chocolate tart I had for dessert was absolutely delicious. Service was a bit haphazard and confused but then the restaurant was very busy and so perhaps to be expected - food came out very fast and so we were not kept waiting. Staff were really friendly and welcoming and atmosphere was excellent. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely come back again.

Set menu CHICKEN was dried out and difficult to eat. Disappointing. I had to ask for extra sauce - which came OK.
On one previous visit I had the set menu FISH (Sea bass/bream?) and it was excellent.
Service fine, indeed very welcoming.
So, could do better.

Our server was very friendly but the tables were very close together so when serving the table next to us she was right upon my dates shoulder which was a bit off putting
Chicken skewers very dry but the burger was good
The wine was also good

Had the set lunch. Starters were very good but main course took ages to come and were dried up and not only inedible they couldn't be cut with a knife they were so tough. To be fair the manager acknowledged the situation and reduced our bill quite fairly but not a good experience

A good experience. The only thing that spoilt it was being charged £3.75 for having water with the meal. When you are paying 12.5% service charge I feel that is a bit much, especially when it isn't pointed out when the staff ask if you would like water...

Staff were flustered, manager was storming about saying about staff being late. Completely unprofessional.
Staff member who took our order forgot my juice we then had to ask another member.
Breakfast was poor, no seasoning, poached eggs were rubbery and hollandsise sauce was awful. Muffin was stale and not fully defrosted, the toast was very hard to cut through. The table we were sat at should not be there, it’s right in a walk way and it was like a circus through the whole time we were there. Very poor service

Very good choice of starters, mains and salads on the menu. Good selection on the 2 and 3 course set menus also.
Wine deals also but seemed to be a better deal ordering the house wine.

Service was friendly but you could tell it was fake. I do not think I had one smile from a waitress the whole time I was there.
Other than that, food was tasty and well presented.

We sat outside and enjoyed a delicious brunch of scrambled eggs on toast and the garden breakfast, along with a pot of tea and a smoothie. The staff were really friendly and the food as always fresh and well presented. Recommended.
