We popped into The Fireplace after a late afternoon appointment. We have been here before but many moons ago. The ambiance was inviting, comfortable and pleasant. Meals did not start until 5.30 so we enjoyed a pre-dinner wine and beer. Food was extremely tasty - I had the stuffed mushrooms which were delicious followed by the butter chicken which was... More

I have been here several times over the past year and have found the food to be of a very high standard. The service is good and the food is delivered in a timely manner - also really like the atmosphere. What more could you want in a restaurant?

What wonderful food we ate this evening. Great service as well. Entrée and mains were very tasty and kids meals were just the right size.

Friendly staff, tasty food served at very reasonable prices. Evenings can be busy and bookings are a good idea, although we arrived without a booking and were quickly seated. Highly recommended.

Visited with my family & it was fantastic! Excellent meals that were a generous serve, really reasonable prices and very friendly/helpful staff! The meals didn't take very long at all to come out, and it's a great atmosphere - clean, lovely decor and a roaring fire on a cold night. Easy parking & very accessible - we will be back... More

A cosy and warm restaurant in winter with the fireplace going. The staff were all really friendly. For the food - there wasn't much to order vegetarian-wise. They offered me a stirfry, which was nice but average at best. Basic veges with some soya sauce and chilli. The sticky date pudding was the driest one I've ever had, and that... More

We had lunch here and even though it was quite late in the afternoon on a Friday for lunch, the food was delicious and the staff very accomodating. A pleasant experience
