Both adults ordered plant burger- it was fine, nothing special… and at £14 a little underwhelming! Definitely expect more for this price, whether it be an extra salad or something else- a slaw on the side would have been nice. The children’s fish fingers were fine. Didn’t stay for pudding.

Pizza was nice but not huge. Service charge when though I had to order at the bar. And ants on the table! Inside! I'm sure on another day the food and service would be better but not for us.

They got very busy at the time we were leaving and it took up to ten minutes to get someone’s attention so that we could pay the bill which was a bit stressful as one of us had a car on a parking meter! Luckily they did’t get a parking ticket. As ever the food was very tasty and the elderflower presse with fresh mint was delicious. Despite the wait for our bill we really enjoyed our lunch and it was good to see that they were busy after all the Covid uncertainty. We look forward to our next visit.

Nice live music I will definitely suggest to all my friends. I had such a great experience. Thank you. Flavio

Staff were polite, friendly and helpful - and became very busy! Service was mostly very good but became slightly stretched as numbers in the restaurant increased (1st Saturday after lifting of all Covid restrictions and schools on half-term may have added to that!). Have eaten there before and will certainly eat there again.

Really appreciated the fact that we were not made to feel bad and our reservation was moved to an hour later. Great warm welcome when we finally got there which was so lovely. Great food too but it’s customer service that matters and today was superb. Thank you!

A table near the back (right) with two tiny radiators in a big room that were barely warm. There was a fire place but can only presume they don’t want to tend to it or the chimney is lit working. Felt really spacious (not a good thing in this situation) and airy/chilly. Hard to enjoy food when you’re not feeling relaxed / comfortable. However, the young waiter was polite, efficient and attentive. Food was good, although pizzas weren’t amazing (base a bit floury/dry) but certainly more than adequate. We felt better for eating and everything happened efficiently. Just felt a bit uncared for when we said we are cold and they didn’t seem bothered.
