    The manageress was extremely personable and we enjoyed a lovely evening Food was very good but would suggest putting it on larger boards- our was piled too high and the cheeses were on top of each other

    Delicious food. Wonderful selection of cheeses, meats and chutneys. We loved everything. It felt like a proper meal as there was veg bits on our sharing board and plenty of bread and crackers to go with it. Unfortunately, there was no beef, which we would have liked. Also, two of the five deserts were off too. We were offered the sticky toffy 'from next door' which we both had and it was divine. I must say the service wasn't attentive. We had to ask for our plate to be taken, about 10 mins after finishing. Then, only the sharing board was taken, not our actual plates. Then we had to ask for the desert menu. No suggestion of more drinks, hot drinks etc was made. It was very tricky to catch a servers eye! There was no music on for about the first hour of our visit, and it felt a little flat in the room. However, I think someone realised and switched it on, which greatly improved the ambiance! We probably will come again with friends as the food is so delicious and the venue feels special. However, I really hope waiting staff is better trained/more on the ball next time!

    Overpriced. Few small slices of bread, bits of fruits and small, tiny slices of salami. £20 plus drink. That would probably cost £2 in the shop. Not mentioning the the rest of the menu is in hundreds of pounds.
