Unfortunately 3 of our menu choices were not available. The tables are all a little too squeezed in. We have been here before a few years ago and it isn’t as good as it was then I’m afraid.

We were greeted and quickly taken to our table.
We then waited 15 mins to be offered a drink. When drinks came the wine was plonked unopened in an ice bucket with no cloth to serve so drips everywhere.
Food order taken and food quick to arrive.
Poor quality food poorly presented. Rump steak arrived cold.
Not asked if we were happy with the food. No interaction with FOH staff at all.

Some lovely bits, great steak and potatoes. But also very hesitant service and cold, dry veg. Everything needs to be a littlr bit better to be worth the money.

The friday night menu was not available and the serving staff did not know what it was.
Servers did not know what the soup or pies were that night.
One meal, gammon steak, was stone cold.
Fish was poor for the money. Frozen fish and cheap chips
However we enjoyed the evening and put the poor food down to teething troubles as the chef is new.

The staff are very friendly & the meal was excellent. The plates were lovely & hot, the portion sizes were very good & the sweet was very well presented. ( I had the vanilla cheesecake sundae )

Good atmosphere and great service. We were a group of 8 and specially asked for quick service which we got. One guest got the wrong food but this wasn’t a big problem. However the steak was rather grisly. It wasn’t charged for.
Menu is quite limited with no specials but what we got was good. Puddings were great.

Food was delicious and the atmosphere was warm, welcoming and very friendly. Have been a few times now and love it there. Steaks, fish, nachos all delicious.
