    Very enjoyable evening. This was a treat from our children and their families. We had the Taster menu which was lovely, especially to get the food on really hot plate. The service was good but we did need 3 hours to get the whole experience.

    The whole experience was fantastic. We were given time to decide on our choices and enough time was left between courses to allow for a breather. The atmosphere was excellent. The menu had changed slightly from when we had looked online but the choices were just as good. It just meant it took a little longer to order. I would recommend the beef and venison as main dishes.

    Friendly staff steak not cooked as ordered and given wrong bottle of wine to which we ordered. Given free desserts to compensate. Still a little disappointed as had heard such good things

    I thought the lunch du jour was excellent value. My husband had a la carte which i thought expensive for a plate of food. Very nice food and wine though.
