    First Sunday lunch we had here was brilliant. However, this Sunday lunch was the Christmas Fayre and not as good. There was far too much food on the plate, the turkey was wrapped in bacon which was not cooked enough. The bacon was very pale. However, the turkey was beautiful just so much. There was, however, plenty of veg. which was lovely. The tables were set beautifully with gold crackers but the room was very cold. Did not see any radiators, or where any warmth could enter. We had the Christmas Pudding which was delicious. We will go back in the New Year, as the staff were lovely and very helpful.

    First class experience. Unusually, a choice for vegetarians! Every course was excellent and the service was faultless. Only problem was car parking. Definitely return.

    Dining room and table nicely set and a good choice of food on the menu. The food was well presented and cooked and first class. Thoroughly enjoyed the brisket (but would have liked more gravy, despite asking for more) and our friends thought the fish was first class. Need more attention to service - no side plate offered for the bread and even though we asked for a soup spoon, it never came and no one around to ask for one again.

    The staff were lovely throughout from greeting through table service to the end. Meals were beautifully presented, ample and delicious. The menu is varied and great value for money, but particularly good for fish..the sea bass was excellent, as was the salmon. The vegetarian selection could be a little more imaginative..goats cheese tart and the vegetable bolognese on the early bird. The desserts were scrumptious and with great portion size! Overall, we had such a lovely evening. This is relaxed fine dining restaurant that we would certainly recommend and will be back in the near future, thank you!
