What a lovely restaurant ! We took our grandchildren who were home from University for a lovely meal. They thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was A+ and the food was delicious and beautifully cooked. The surroundings were really pleasant. Will definitely go there again.

Whilst the ambience was very nice, we were both a bit disappointed with the afternoon tea. The quality of the sandwiches was slightly disappointing, the bread was very thin and there was a finger mark or two on a couple of the sandwiches. The cakes were average except for the lemon cake which was delicious.

The aroma coming out of the restaurant for the lunch time meals smelt very nice so if we visit again I think we would come for a meal rather than afternoon tea.

My husband & I visited here on a Saturday night and it was pretty loud what with the live music and the number of people chatting away but I didn't mind this as it created a buzz. Food was pricier than we usually pay (£85 for 3 courses each and a bottle of house wine) but was tasty and well presented and portion size was good. Service was very good and staff were friendly. Overall we enjoyed our dining experience and would recommend, especially for a special occasion.

Great meal and lovely service but I forgot about live music on a Friday so my mistake. We had to leave and go elsewhere for a drink after we ate because we were tired of trying to talk/shout over the music.

Booked in for an early evening birthday meal with 2 friends and were the first customers. There was still a lovely atmosphere. When there was nobody else in. The service was excellent which continued as the restaurant filled up. There were several families dining and the service was the same high standard for all.
We all had a starter and a main course and all were absolutely delicious. 50% discount on Mondays allowed me to splash out on the lobster with garlic and herb butter which was one of the best meals I have had.
Great experience and I would definitely recommend it. Can't wait to go back

The menu is a little limited for a good restaurant; once you take away the burgers and the steak, and with a few items off like when we went (e.g. lobster), there's not a lot left. But once the food itself arrived everything was fine. Interesting, tasty and brilliantly presented, it made us remember why we have enjoyed coming here before.

Worth considering adding a few more options though.

The Prawn Starter was great, the Hake was advertised on a bed of Mediterranean vegetables, it was on a bed of Ratatouille, also smothered in Ratatouille and the strond tomato was too strong for the Hake, disappointing. The Chunky chips were great. The hot molten chocolate pudding was a Chocolate fondant with white chocolate ice cream. The fondant was overcooked and broken into the dish with the ice cream on top! Dont know if this was to hide an overdone pud or whether it was artistic attempts. Generally, the place was chosen as an alternative to the usual boil in the bag pub restaurant places but at £32 a head for four starters, five mains and three desserts it doesn't live up to Value for money. The staff were great, the waitress was jolly, attentive and an asset to the business.

Not our best dining experience here unfortunately - our table was booked for 6.30pm & we had to choose 3 times to find a dish on the menu that was still available! Service was exceptionally slow -we did not order a starter & waited almost an hour for our main course . Thankfully when it eventually arrived, the food was really tasty & well-cooked. The waiter was very apologetic about our long wait & gave us a round of drinks & a coffee on the house to make up for it!
We ordered a dessert afterwards which tasted good but the portion size was minuscule for £6.
Wouldn't rush back I'm afraid Tom :(

Went out with the hubby. Food was lovely, there was a nice atmosphere and this shouldn't be a criticism but we had finished our starter and main meal within an hour. We ended up buying a dessert just so we could stay there a bit longer! It might not always be like that!?

First visit to Tom and was extremely impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff. My Blue cheese burger was perfectly cooked and very tasty and my friends steak also delicious. We hadn't known that there is live music on a Friday but as we were getting the bill we were offered a reserved table in the bar and really enjoyed the band.

The atmosphere was buzzing and we will certainly be back.

Up here on business and been twice. Food cooked and presented well. I had a midweek deal - the chicken liver par fair starter was easily shared between 2. And followed by a good sized, rare steak and a fish and chips. All well executed.
Thoroughly recommended

My wife and myself went to this restaurant on Saturday 12th August. 1st time here . We thought the food was brilliant, staff were on the ball . And the service was great . The live music that came on later on in the evening was also brilliant.
My only negative about this restaurant is I thought the price of the alcohol is very expensive . £28.00 for 4 bottles of peroni .
