The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming; the food was excellent,and to have a jug of fresh water placed on the table before we had ordered was a very nice touch that was much appreciated. The special Sunday Lunch menu was just right for our needs. Our grandchildren (ages 7 and 9) were made welcome and the requirement to cater for "dairy free" for one of them was made easy by the choices available on the menu. A great experience that will definitely be repeated.
Excellent. Not overly busy but good atmosphere, Attentive service. Food excellent. Sat in bar area and had a drink and placed our order then food was ready moved to restaurant area.
Very friendly. Food lovely. Had to remind waiting staff a few times about a couple of things though. Very loud and struggled to hear conversation with my partner a few times, but the place definitely had atmosphere.
Great food, nice atmosphere. We had a lovely romantic meal. Would have been 6 but they were understaffed at the time and the menus were very old and needed replacing.
Generally good. There was a large party in, and that seemed to slow the service down a little, but the food was very tasty and well presented.
