Serving staff very knowledgeable informative and helpful. the menu very easy to read and understand. food quality was excellent. Range of drinks good. The food quality was good but the food portion was poor eg half a carrot with the duck. The small sides were small!, Desserts at £7!! The quality was good and the plate design appealing but value for money very poor. Drinks prices on the high side. Would I go again? Probably not more likely to try Chef and Brewer or Miller and Carter based on a balance of quality and value for money.
Delicious food and friendly staff, great little place which I recommend regularly.
Had a mixed roast so lamb, pork and beef. Couldn’t decide which was best as they were all exceptional. 7 year old had the kids steak meal and totally loved it. All things considered this is the best restaurant in Northampton!
