The staff were so helpful and pleasant it really made our evening. The food was tasty and served piping hot. Good choice available on the menu. Only criticism would be I ordered venison which was beautiful but did not come with any potatoes like my companions meals. Would highly recommend.

The service was good, very friendly and helpful. I wasn’t that impressed with the food. The selection is a bit random. The risotto was swimming in oil. It tasted ok but visually it wasn’t very appealing.

Service was great, the team were very friendly and attentive. The food was OK, I had the daily special venison burger which was slathered in mayonnaise (mayonnaise was not listed on the menu) which came with a small salad and chips - the amount of chips could of fed a family of four! We also had some onion rings, these tasted like they came from a frozen packet.
My partnet had the cornfed chicken which was very nice, and the rest of the menu was varied and modern. Overall a nice restaurant with excellent service but let down by two average to poor dishes, which for the price, seemed below par.

The waitress couldn’t have been better. Comparing our meal to the meal we had last September was difficult. My chicken dish and dessert were really lovely but my husband didn’t really enjoy his steak.... nothing to send it back for but just not that good. Maybe it was because we ate early but there wasn’t much atmosphere this time.

Fresh decor and attentive staff. Local produce features well on the menu. Given the explosion of veganism, particularly amongst the younger generation, a better selection of vegan main courses would be helpful. My vegan daughter would haven been limited to a burger or risotto - which are nice, but are the "standard" vegan options everywhere. Having been to many of the new vegan restaurants appearing, there is so much more out there, with a little imagination.
