Lovely food, attentive but relaxed service. Would recommend to anyone who wants to eat excellent home cooked food in a homely atmosphere. Far better than a chain

We have had many meals in this restaurant over many years and every one has been excellent. The food is traditional British cuizine of the highest standard and the portions are quite large. Cheryl makes you very welcome and the service is very efficient. The restaurant is intimate without being crowded and all tables have clean white tablecloths which generally seems a rarity these days. We would recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Been to this restaurant many times and food is excellent, on our visit last night with friends who hadn't been before, I had the lamb along with my husband. His was perfect and he ate it all, mine was terrible and ALL fat, I made no fuss due to being with people who hadn't been before and just left it. When my plate was taken away we were asked if everything was ok I then said about my meal not being nice and was asked if I had sent it back I said no due to being with others and my plate was taken away along with most of meal meal on it so they could see how it was. What I don't like is there was no apologies what so ever they could have just acknowledged my complaint. Other than that lovely restaurant.

This a superb place to eat with large well cooked portions served on hot plates by excellent staff. We will be eating here again in the next few weeks. If it dimmed the lights just a little it would be even better and make it a bit more romantic.

We received a warm welcome. Service was excellent; friendly and efficient. Lovely to eat at a well=laid table. Portions were ample and the food was piping hot. The sauces were a little too rich for our taste and would have been better served on the side, but that was our only criticism. We would certainly visit again.
