N coming regularly since the restaurant has been revamped. Very pleased on each occasion. As normally come at lunch time the lunch menu could do with changing more regularly. Latest change is very appreciated.

Service very poor. Drinks forgotten for at least half an hour until reminded. Food took over an hour arriving at table although good when it did arrive. No specials board on view and not mentioned when ordering our food. Only one card machine available for payment. Will not be returning.

A very busy mother’s day , staff were rushed off their feet but were trying their absolute best to see to everyone, very professional and friendly . We’ve eaten here many times the food is always a good standard.

Avery pleasant evening out. Good choice of food, well cooked and well presented. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Only issue was the noise level. That was more about the people who were there rather than the establishment.

Everything was great. Although as we were in the bar area it was a bit noisy. I should have asked to have the music turned down, so my fault.
