    The restaurant has a really nice look to it. We couldn't believe how good the food tasted. The cheese and onion pie was perfect and the steak was the best ever. The staff are amazing and do their jobs perfectly.

    Social distancing doesn’t detract from the atmosphere which is always warm and welcoming. Allergies are accommodated with care and attention. Food fabulous as always, I usually go for steak, I had fish this time which was equally delicious. Definitely my go to restaurant.

    Lovely surroundings. Very welcoming. So quiet and peaceful. Best meal since lockdown began. Had to shelter for 5 months and was very dubious about coming but needn't have worried everything was perfect.
