    Restaurant was bigger than expected and in a nice setting. Not very busy for the Christmas period and no atmosphere. We were a table of 5. One main meal had to be returned as dauphinoise potato square was brown, hard and inedible. Another meal was given and was good although by the time it arrived the others had nearly finished. Those who had turkey could not get their cutlery into the roast potatoes and the waiter took them to show the chef. 2 glasses of complimentary wine were given by the waiter. The waitress did not write our orders down and came back twice to check!

    Warm clean, pleasant environment. The service is friendly and attentive. The special, most noteworthy point to make was that the food was really very good. Simple, 'homecooked' taste. Not over priced.

    A lovely decorated restaurant; very warm and relaxing in the centre of a business park. Free parking and the food was excellent. Drinks were a tad on the pricey side; I assume because it's in a business park. But a lovely atmosphere and the waiter was very friendly and chatty. We didn't feel rushed. Would recommend if you want to go somewhere just off junction 12.
