Great breakfast with even better service. Varied menu and lovely place. Would definitely recommend.
Food was great, staff friendly and helpful but the music was a bit loud.
Absolutely love this place to take my little boy as you can eat delicious food while the children play!
Lovely breakfast, very tasty, overall a great place would really recommend it
A good first experience encouraged by 50% off food & live music! The venue is rustic & was a tad draughty on a very cold evening, but the warmth of the welcome & the staff made up for it. The food is freshly prepared & arrived in good time. We had the whitebait & mushrooms which were both delicious. For mains I had roasted butternut squash which was a most unusual combination & very tasty with the house red Merlot. My husband had the spicy chicken. It came as a leg which he wasn’t expecting & didn’t enjoy. This was unexpectedly taken off the bill. Overall the service & food are recommended & we will be back during the day or on a warmer evening!
The menu had good choices, a nice selection. The quality of the sausage and bacon was very good, you can tell a cheap sausage, but these were amazing, both the sausage and bacon were very good quality. The staff were lovely, really attentive, made you feel relaxed. This is now going to be our regular meeting place for breakfast, brunch, lunch. Plenty of spaces in the car park
We requested to make a pre-order for our food because we do not have long for lunch. We specifically requested our food to arrive at 13.15pm because our lunch break is only from 13.00-14.00, however the food arrived at 13.40-13.45 which made us rush our food. We was late back to work by 15 minutes due to this. Maybe a pre-order option should not be an option at the restaurant if it is impossible for the food to arrive on time? Other than that, we enjoyed the food, it was very lovely and the service was good.. Thank you
Booked a table for 5 for lunch with some visitors from abroad, on arrival we were kept waiting for 5-7 minutes even though the restaurant was practically empty. The chap on the counter continued making tea and the waitress chatted to the only other customers at their table. Finally seated we ordered lunch and after 25-30 minutes wait we called the waitress over to mention we had to head back and if we could hurry up on our order she told us they didn't have any more fish due to an accident - fish was what a couple of us had ordered! so we then had to re-order something else very quickly, and eat and leave in 15 minutes. I wonder how long she would've waited if we hadn't prompted her? So generally poor customer services, kept waiting at the door then kept waiting for our food and only when prompted the waitress told us they actually weren't able to provide us with what we ordered. The actual food was good though and no complains there.
We loved the venue, it was cosy and styled in a unique way so it was nice experiencing a different atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and there service was great also! The food was good...no gravy came on my roast and the hot pot wasn't fully cooked as it was cold firm and cold in the middle, however this did not effect our experience and we will be back!
Lovely visit, good service considering the place was packed. Food was all tasty, spiced chicken leg was on the small side so not much chicken , other than that all was good . Been here a few times now would recommend booking as saw people that hadn’t being told waiting time for a table was around 1 Hour at 2 pm. Looking forward to our next visit .
