We went for the 3 courses for £14.95 midweek special, however we found that almost all of the food choices were subject to an additional supplement on each course and the veg or chips were also extra .

Visited for lunch, helpful service and I was pleased to see how they make use of local suppliers eg. meat from local farmers and fish from the market in Birmingham. We both had fish for a main course, it came promptly and tasted good. Courteous staff and reasonable prices.

Sunday lunch: absolutely delicious flavours and beautiful presentation. Well worth the £15.95 for three courses. The meat fell apart it was so tender. Fantastic decor and lovely friendly staff. Great service. Will definitely visit again.
