Live locally and visit regularly. Usually spot in, today service very poor, waitress rather rude and unnecessarily so. Still cost £100 so not cheap, no starters or desserts so should have been better. Will have too think twice about visiting again.

We came as a group for a Christmas Party on Monday evening. Food was fabulous and great value at £22.00 for 3 courses. I recommended here as our venue and you didn't let me down. Service was great as always. Merry Christmas!
