Great service, great food and a cosy atmosphere. We had the bream, and rib eye the steak. Both were perfectly cooked and seasoned.

    Sunday lunch for 3; one local and two visitors from the Isle of Wight. Quick, efficient and polite service. Particularly impressed by the speed of service especially as we were given a choice on how the meat should be cooked. Good value Sunday roast in a pleasant environment.
    My restaurant ratings are based on my personal experience of one visit; I cannot rate events outside my limited experience.

    Great service and excellent food, the pork cheek starter was my highlight, but the monkfish was a close contender
