Excellent service and good food. It was good to be able to choose our own table. It was also good to be able to use our free wine voucher

Extremely pleasant meal. Freshly prepared food, nicely presented. As always attentive and delightful service. Food is simple but done very well. Smallish portions but that’s a compliment as it is such good quality.

Good ideal for meeting my brother in law and his wife plates were nice and hot. Only problem we had was that when starter was being cleared away we ordered another bottle however that did not arrive so had to ask again when main course was served.
