The food and particularly the pork belly was delicious
30 July 2020
I had the pork belly which was very good. Friends enjoyed their Croque Monsieur and Ploughman's (wasn't your standard one). Jug of water with ice replaced without having to ask for another one. It was a beautiful sunny day and we enjoyed sitting outside under the open sided gazebo. Obviously not their fault but there were lots of wasps. On reflection, they could perhaps hang wasp catchers eg attractive glass at this time of the year. Will definitely return.

Great food, excellent friendly and attentive staff will definitely be back. The team had a difficult customer on a neighbouring table and dealt with the rudeness admirably.

We had a lovely Sunday lunch in the restaurant, it was a family celebration. The service was excellent as well as the food. Also excellent wine with a good choice. Nice atmosphere, really couldn't be faulted.

A beautiful Tudor building located on the Old Town High Street, with ample parking to the rear and an original charming interior. The menu was compact but well balanced and there was something for all members of my party. The food was excellent, well presented and the service courteous and efficient.
