A Sunday lunch menu and range of superb desserts also feature.

Fixed price menu deal - 3 courses + glass of wine. All very good, although wasn't clear that there was not a side with the main course - we would like to have been informed of this, but a minor point.

Not up to the usual standard unfortunately. Pork was very disappointing . Texture was very chewy. Chocolate ice cream was watery with not much flavour. Too much butter/ oil with scallops. Scallops themselves were lovely. Steak was excellent. Dissapointing meal overall and certainly not good for the cost. Although would normally recommend restaurant this was not a good experience.

We enjoyed the offer of 3 courses and a glass of wine for £19.95.

Four of us enjoyed a pleasant meal on Saturday lunchtime. Three other tables were occupied, so the place would have lacked a bit of atmosphere if we had been a smaller group. The food was good -one of our party was French and was critical of the broad English 'translations' (mandated by 'head office' apparently) of the dishes. although we were on a £20 meal deal extras took the total bill to approx. £130, so be careful. £5.45 for a gin plus £1.60 for the tonic seemed a bit cheeky. The bar staff and waiter were friendly and professional.

Limited choice but my beef ragout was excellent , melt in the mouth beef complimented with a very acceptable Cotes de Rhone . All in a great way to celebrate a birthday

A lovely special treat booked for a birthday. Good value set menu with nice house wines. What we ate was fantastic, but we would have ordered sesonal vegetables if we had known that there were none with the meal (beef)

I booked table for 2 dinner - 3 courses & a glass of wine @ £19.50 per person via Bookatable.com. Firstly it was an early valentine meal for my partner so didn't want him to know how much it was costing me ! The 'deal' was not honoured, I ended up paying for our 2 glasses of wine extra to the food and not as I'd booked to be included in the £19.50 deal. I didn't say anything as I didn't want to appear cheap! But I definitely won't be dining there again, or indeed recommending the experience to anyone!
