Had a very good evening meal here. We each had a different dish. All were very tasty and well cooked. The food is not typical bar or pub food. It is of a high quality. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had a very enjoyable evening.

Friendly staff attentive on both arrival & departure but not over the top, helpful advice on meals. Car parking outside but not massive so may need to walk a small distance. all on the level
