What a lovely place. As you enter the main building you are in the bar with a log fire and off it is also a couple of railway carriages for dining . We were lucky enough to be seated in the carriage looking out at all the trains that passed. The menu choice is a mix of Greek and Italian.... More

Really great food, great atmosphere and staff are very helpful. We were a table of about 16 - the staff and kitchen coped just as well as they would have if we were a table of 2. Only 1 disappointment was they ran out of Tiramisu! Having had it before we knew how nice it was..... next time though!

Very romantic setting your own booth, a table lamp and a view of the railway. Food very good. We had a groupon voucher for steak and a glass of wine each for £20.

We celebrated my birthday using a Groupon voucher. We booked for 12 noon but it was much later when our starter arrived. We ordered rib eye steaks but only three left so the one person had to choose an alternative. Considering this was only mid day it seemed rather funny that they were sold out so early. One of the...

Food had both a TDH menu and an Al a carte menu. We had a TDH menu but I did ask to change the starter to something off the other menu. Paid a small supplement but worth the cost. The food was well cooked, tasty and amazing service. Loved the Greek themed food. Unusual to get really good Greek food... More

We went for a celebratory meal, and wasn't advised on booking that it was Greek night so buffet only. I didn't actually mind this as I love Greek food, only problem was there wasn't an awful lot left! When we went up for our starters which consisted of....salad! No feta left in the Greek salad which is my favourite so... More
