My husband ate here on a Sunday night after finding many other places closed. It was packed, which we hoped would be a good thing, and given how good the other food in the area had been, we didn't think we could go wrong. The...More

Dont be fooled by the location, food wasn't up to the prices. Rare duck well done. Medium burgers cold and falling apart they were so rare. Every dish was criminally under seasoned including fois gras and old dauphenois. Sorry just not good enough when there...More

We went here on the advice of our B & B host, but we were really disappointed. My husband had the salad with chicken....it’s really hard to mess up a salad, but this one was pretty poor....sad looking and tasting greens, too many carrots, fried...More

Had a quick early evening meal here. My partner had to send her steak back as it was stone cold (and had literally only taken 5 minutes before it arrived from ordering, my chicken was bland. Second steak was almost too tough to eat. Total...More
