    They were excellent : our train was held up so we arrived late but they still managed to serve us 2 delicious courses in half-an-hour in time for the show.

    We have dined here many times but the menu was very limited this time and the 4 of us found it difficult to choose any of the menu. We were disappointed and will not eat here again.

    The food was tasty and of a high standard. We booked the 3 course festival deal with free glass of prosecco which was very good value for money. Service was excellent, friendly and unobtrusive.

    Friendly and efficient service . Starters and mai courses good. Dessert menu limited and too many chocolatey things in dessert we had.

  • ((((* 14 October 2018 by Christopher from London Borough of Lewisham

    Very good food in a relaxed, NOT noisy environment, which sadly is hard to find these days. The ambient music was relaxing; in the background, not in your head.
