    We really enjoyed our meal from the daily set menu. Very tasty and nicely presented. Service good too.. Will definitely be back and very busy for a Monday evening. The only thing was the fencing round the property was probably a bit high as you can't see out. Presume as it masks the road.

  • ((((( 12 August 2018 by Richard from Grenhithe

    An experience which has never let us down, the warmth of the greeting is extremely assuring when entering the restaurant and returning customers are instantly recognised, the quality and presentation of the food are well up to a top quality dinning experiemce.

    We were impressed with the general atmosphere, busy but we were able to hold a conversation, the service was timed nicely between courses , all dishes were pipping hot ,the lamb and the two duck dishes were cooked to perfection, and well presented .The puddings were tasty--my wife's favourite course every time ! the wine arrived a little late with an apology, but that was coincidently as we prefer it served with the with the main course. The service though out was efficient and friendly which maintains a welcoming atmosphere to diners. All in all one of the best dining experiences in the area, and a venue to which we intend to return.

    Fantastic food and staff

  • ((((( 6 August 2018 by Joseph from Poringland

    Generally the food was excellent. Too much risotto with sea bream, overpowered delicate flavour of fish. The Beef carpaccio was epic.
    The Staff were exemplary ... 10/10+
