    The booking process was smooth and on arrival the staff were attentive and accommodating. I was asked about dietary requirements when booking and mentioned that one of our party was gluten intolerant and one vegetarian. I'm not sure why I was asked that as the information didn't seem to have been passed on to the staff so it raised expectation unduly, but once made known to them they talked through the suitable options.
    The speed of service wasn't great given only one other table were dining so we would have expected our food to come more quickly, unfortunately there were further disappointments to come when it did. All of the starters were over-priced for what they delivered and the pork terrine was particularly disappointing/lacking in flavour. The mains also failed to impress with the sea bass in such small proportions that it could have been another starter; the duck overcooked to the point that parts were too tough to eat; the jus and mash with the lamb shank uninspiring and the vegetarian tart weighted more towards accompanying salad than tart.
    All of these things could be seen as minor individually and I might not have been moved to provide such a full and critical review had it not been for the fact that the service was also a let down. When the member of our party who had the sea bass commented on the fact that he thought it was a liberty to charge what they were for such a small portion, the Manager's response was that he would inform the chef and that they'd never had any complaints before.
    Given that no responsibility was taken for our disappointment and not much interest shown in our enjoyment, we decide against desserts and looked to move on elsewhere. Unfortunately for all, there followed a 15-20 minute debacle in which we were unable to pay due to some issues with the card machine. The manager offered little or no apology during or after that episode though thankfully the waiter on duty did gladly give us a free drink, after we asked for one...

    Brilliant, nice ambience, great location bearing in mind there was a tempest on outside so car park was quite close. Food suited me nicely so we had two starters of home made tomato soup and then I had a salad (always on a diet) and my dining partner had the best ever king prawns in a beautiful sauce (but a big portion). Lovely fresh bread with the meal, glass of wine etc. Good service. It was so nice not to have to eat a heavy meal and suffer the consequences. Would recommend the restaurant.

    The atmosphere and place and service was lovely but food absolutely below average and very much disappointing. First it did t look French at all second it was rather tasteless..
