Lovely place to catch up with friends with tasty homemade food. We had two babies with us and they had the high chairs ready at the table for us was great to find a family friendly place.
Excellent venue, friendly staff and great food. I can't rate this place highly enough. Greeted by a huge roaring fire, we were slightly early, but our table was ready for us. We were made very welcome as soon as we arrived and were updated on the menu straight away, so that we could make informed choices on our varied requirements. We will definitely return.
First time eating here and was pleasantly surprised; great food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely return, probably for a slice of the amazing looking cakes.
We came to this restaurant for the first time and had a thoroughly excellent meal. A super relaxed atmosphere and the staff are so helpful. Great selection of food. We had a small child and a baby with us. We will certainly be booking to come back.
Lovely Sunday lunch and nice service. Only criticism was we were told that one person out of our group of 6 would have to go without a Yorkshire pudding as they had ran out! We were compensated with some cauliflower cheese but still found it hard to understand why more yorkies could not be made. Will definitely return.
A lovely meal and friendly staff in lovely atmosphere. Although my sister's husband got the wrong meal (regular not festive) they were most apologetic and gave him a free drink. We love going here and look forward to going again. The food is fantastic and its nice to look around the garden centre and shop before and after.
The food as always was wonderful but the service was slower than usual. I was surprised that on such a busy day there were so few waiting staff on duty, which meant inefficiencies in service, such as people who arrived after us getting their orders taken first. It just seemed a little disorganised. Some beautiful gifts in the shop, and again, we can never resist buying something from there!
Interesting and unusual atmosphere and decor. Very enjoyable meal, freshly cooked. Service good, not hurried. Had a slight problem with the bill, but it was amended without a problem. Friends said it was one of the best Sunday Lunches they had eaten out for a long time. Intend to return in the future.
An amazing scone experience! We ordered coffee and scones and got beautiful warm scones - my daughter had waffles which were a little dry do they helped her by making a sausage con - perfect! There was no pressure to rush - thank you!
A great setting and décor, however I was somewhat disappointed with the Sunday lunch. The plate was swimming with gravy that was very thin - it made the meal very sloppy. The pudding - Apple Crumble was OK but not as good as I would have expected having read the glowing reviews.
