    Not a great experience here, very rowdy and tight in the sitting area. Arrived at 1830 main meals arrived at 2110! 15 mins previous to this we were told that one of the meals were not available having ordered an hour and half earlier! Pies were undercooked, steak was rare when asked for medium..Staff were apologetic but really not good enough. Won’t be returning

    The staff were lovely but I’m afraid the food was terrible. We chose the Dragon Beef Curry but I’m afraid it was extremely poor. It was watery and tasteless with very little beef (no more than 4 or 5 small lumps, one of which was just fat. Very disappointing I’m afraid.

    The Sunday dinner was nice but we found the plat sizes to small as the food kept falling off the plates. The thing that spoilt it was the choice of dessert everything was with salted caramel,no pain dessert like apple crumble, we did ask the waitress if there was any other choice but she said that when they did things like apple crumble it doldrums out we thought that was a bit strange.

    Fantastic afternoon. Delicious food. Good portion sizes. Friendly helpful staff. We started in the restaurant and moved to the fire place. We only went for lunch but we were so relaxed and comfortable we stayed for 7 hours 🙂 The only down side is the lack of lighting on the roads leading to it. But we'll worth going to

    Love it here but they always run out of stuff early. Had a booking at 2:30 and they had no cauli cheese left and no Brie! If you don’t go there before 1 on a Sunday (which is too early for me) then they often run out of these things. I can’t understand why they don’t stock up more when this happens regularly!

    Starters were really good and came out really quickly, we then waited an hour for mains. We were offered a free round of drinks when we questioned how much longer it would be which we did appreciate. Would have also appreciated just being notified that there was a bit of a wait on mains as we were trying to keep two kids entertained. We were a group of 6 adults and 2 kids so a bigger order, but still think an hour is too long to wait. I would still return because the food was lovely, maybe just not in a group again.
