I.E over £800 in cover charges not including drinks. The service was very poor , the food was VERY poor and the response to a complaint was the worst... More

Service was very friendly but food was just average, and in m opinion not worth the money. Portions were on the lean side and drinks were expensive.

I had a turkey roast dinner and my husband had a Yorkshire with sausage and mash. It was all excellent. Home made, fresh and good quality meat. The staff were really helpful and service was quick. Great looking restaurant too. We will definitely return.
