A really beautiful Sunday lunch, we will definitely return. We loved the optional extra veg options enabling you build your perfect roast.
Between us we ordered beef sirloin, roast chicken & pork loin- all of which were delicious.

Lovely restaurant nice atmosphere and decor. Staff very friendly and attentive. We had burgers which were tasty but just warm. I personally like my food red hot. I would go back again and perhaps try something different.

Booked the outdoor terrace which was covered & heated. With just a nice cup of tea, we were perfectly comfortable despite the rain & wind. Staff fully masked & we were all alone in the courtyard, so very much socially distanced!

Lovely setting and great service and food. If there were a downside it was just the food seemed a little overpriced and there wasn’t a huge variety of gluten free options

The staff member upon entry was not particularly pleasant, however, Dom was exceptional and really made our evening great. The food was really good quality and the outdoor seating area was lovely.

Superb food, beautiful place and the staff were very attentive. Covid not an issue as they had the cleaning and gel off to a tee. Would recommend this place as anything from a date night to friends meeting up. Plenty parking too.
