Lovely Sunday lunch. The duck and bread and butter pudding were delicious. Lovely, friendly staff, knew what they were doing and nothing was too much trouble. ( extra custard) . My only negative comment.... the lighting was a little bit too bright! X

The restaurant was lovely, the staff were very friendly and accommodating and the food was beautiful. For a Monday night it was busy but we were served promptly and efficiently - would definitely recommend.

The food was excellent, the overall ambience was very good and the waitress service was good as well! The only downfall is the very small car park!
