Lovely place for lunch, very friendly staff who look after everyone really well. Food is tasty, nice combinations. The menu is small, but there is always a good 'balance' of choice types. Similarly the wine list is short, but the wines offered are good quality choices.
I particularly like the Cloud Factory Sauvignon.

Great food and excellent quality from a well presented and thought out menu. Only downside was the specials significantly more expensive than other menu items, it would have been nice to know before receiving the bill.

Very COVID secure- tables well spaced and menus on boards at the end of the table meaning that we didn’t have to touch them.
Very friendly and attentive staff.
Food very good, soup delicious and salads had interesting ingredients.
Wine by the glass very reasonably priced.

Food was a massive let down (we went for Sunday lunch. I'm a vegetarian who hates beetroot. The main veggie dish was beetroot based and the side veggies on offer were carrots and beetroot! No other choice! So I couldn't eat much! My kids eat everything except beef and betetroot. There was no chicken and only beef or the beetroot main course available. The lovely waiter gave them each a sausage as an alternative, but it was very undercooked! Neither child liked the potatoes - they normally love them but they were not cooked well! Although we all love yorkshire puds, I was the only one who enjoyed them from this resturant as again, they were not well cooked! All in all, we left most if the food!! It would have been nice to have had normal veg like broccoli or cauliflower or peas, so the kids could've eaten something! And would have been good to have had more choice than just beetroot or beef as main dishes.

Ambience was great and staff were lovely! Price would have been ok if the food had been delicious, but it wasn't!

Didn’t eat at Phoenix so can’t say how good it was but cocktails were very nice especially as they were 2for1. We had a lovely waiter making sure we had everything we wanted and a laugh to talk to aswell.

Made a booking for 5pm for an early evening meal. Upon arrival, we were informed that the kitchen didn't actually open til 6pm. After a few minutes of being seated, our waiter informed us that the chef was almost ready for service, so we wouldn't have to wait til 6pm. We were then eating delicious meals by 5:30! Excellent service, atmosphere, food and a good pint of real ale too!

This is a gem of a place. The staff are excellent, the food is really delicious and they have gone above and beyond to meet and exceed all the guidance relating to covid 19. Each time we return there we are met with very friendly and attentive service. The food is really fresh and delicious and the layout and ambiance are spacious and relaxed.

They take temperatures as you enter, provide hand santisers also. They operate one way systems and have put screens up on each table to help protect diners.

can't recommend them enough!
