    Delicious food, well cooked. Good selection of dishes. Portion sizes adequate but not large. Fabulous cheese selection. Good service, friendly and attentive staff. Overall a really lovely night. I'm sure we will return.

    Superb service. Steak cooked exactly as requested. Would like to try taster menu next time. Lack of space post dining causes overcrowding

    Excellent food and service as always.

    I had a good meal and the service was good, but my vegetarian companion was disappointed. There were no vegetarian starters or mains on the menu, despite the menu on the website saying 'Vegetarians are well catered for'.
    In the end she had a starter with the fish taken off and for her main course she was offered roasted vegetables.
    Well catered for? -Can't see how.
