    We went for sunday lunch and were very disapointed. The Sunday lunch menu is at good value @ [$] for three courses but did not live up to standard today. The oysters, were clean and nicely opened, but still had the under muscle attached so we had to dig in ourselves to cut them off. A chicory and apple salad was Soooooo boring, with some grain mustard dressing and walnuts. Ham hock terrine with red onion chutney was way to vinegary and under seasoned, the chutney to acidic too. After waiting 25 minutes for a top up of bread for the terrine we received our two main course plates of roast beef + trims. Under cooked potatoes, tasteless gravy, dry yorkie...Might return to sample the a la carte menu.

    booked for 7,15pm before cinema,mostly good service but wine waiter grumpy.Rabbit warm salad starter nice,my mixed grill very good, my wife's scallops terrible,at £[$] she had four modest scallops, rather pretentiously in shells.with a tiny spot of mash potatoe and some seaweed which had a pungent odour and which on enquiry we left was for decoration and not edible. This dish was not acceptable in terms of portion size or quality.However we will go back and be much more careful with choice of meal,normally We would have sent the scallops back.

    Ate fairly early Saturday evening. Restaurant already lively though not yet full - it was by 8.00pm. Greeted efficiently and warmly, and shown to table quickly. Service was efficient and fairly brisk throughout. The wine list is good, with some unusual and trendy wines (Verdejo, Garvi, Picpoul on the whites), and not too steep price-wise. We also had a carafe of Nero d''Avola that was excellent and fairly cheap. Food was good, fresh oysters were REALLY fresh and the squid starter excellent. Three of us has scallops as a main - again really tasty, with black pudding. The partridge main was perhaps a little overdone but tasted excellent. The only downside was that at 7.30 on Saturday they had already run out of scallops and the steak and kidney pud was unavailable. Overall, very enjoyable - I think this is one of the best options for s decent dinner out in the area.

    We dined at 7:30 on a fairly quiet Sunday evening, but it did fill up and get much busier while we were there. We weren't terribly hungry so we split the salt beef salad to start with (a delicious combination of tastes and textures clearly designed by someone who knows what they are doing). Then I had the scallops and my partner had the rack of lamb. Both were excellently prepared and cooked. In and out in an hour, though had we wanted to linger over coffee and liqueurs there would have been no problem.

    Dined as a group for a birthday celebration on aTuesday evening. A very nice environment in which to spend an evening with excellent and very attentive service. Whilst the food is nothing special it is still very pleasant and represents great value for money in the week if using a taste card. Possibly a little expensive if not. All in all a positive all round experience which comes recommended.

    Our favourite place for Sunday brunch, great also with the kids and the grandparents.Super food, wide range of choice (decent veggie choices too), excellent value (kids egg and soldiers under [$]with two eggs and toast). Lovely place, not crowded in, not too hot or cold or noisy!Pleasant and helpful service too. Recommend it whole heartedly.
