Staff were nice, but service was slow. The seafood pasta was great however my partner was disappointed with his roast lamb. Was expensive for what we got.

An excellent Sunday lunch - we all had Roast Lamb/Beef and the meat was cooked beautifully and all accompaniments including plenty of gravy all very tasty. Delicious puddings (recommend the pear and almond tart)! Sheltered outdoor seating in very pleasant surroundings - benches not the most comfortable though.

I had lunch there. The first impression was not too bad, except the roadside table was a bit loud.
For starter and main menu, I ordered octopus and halibut they were a little bit overpriced compared to what it tastes. the octopus was over seasoned and covered with spiciness and too much chilly oil, and for halibut taste was great but it was too juicy on the table with seaweed and broccoli. P.S. side bread was great.
I would go sometimes if I don't bother to spend a little bit of overpriced food.
It would be interesting to experience dinner.

It’s unfortunate the food wasn’t great and it was very windy outside.
It should be made clear that the seating is around the edge of the conservatory - some of the seating is basically next to the road.

I booked for Brunch at 12:00 and the reservation was accepted, when we arrived at the restaurant I was told Brunch was until 11:00 so it was a pity we weren't told before to give us the option. we decided to stay for lunch, food was delicious, service was average not because of the speed but because of the lack of friendly service.

Good food but Waiter service is slow. Food came quick but Feel like they are understaffed? Waited 20 mins for drinks and 20mins for our order to be taken and then had to ask 2 times for the bill and another time for the card machine!
On top of it all when they asked how the meal was we said everything was great except drinks a bit slow and there was some attitude.

The service was excellent, our waiter was attentive and friendly. The food was outstanding- I had the prawn linguini and it was possibly the tastiest pasta dish I've ever had. The creme catalina dessert was also delicious. The ambience was lovely, with lots of plants and pretty decorations. My only criticism is that the overhead cover was patchy and we go rained on slightly. Whilst the artfully draped sheets were lovely they left a lot of gaps!

We booked planning to have a brunch as they also have a brunch menu available online. When arriving they didn't have any brunch options, and after asking they said they only server what's in the menu.
The waiter kept asking us to order more food, even though we clearly mentioned that we don't need anything else.
No heaters and limited coverage on the tables, so an a rainy/cold day almost impossible to sit outside.
