They were not prepared for us and actually tried to turn us away even though we had booked it weeks before. 12 of us and we were the only ones there. Food took forever to come it and was at best average! Drinks were unusual,...More

Dear Mr C. I have actually reported this review to Tripadvisor, as we were closed in December when you claim to have visited our restaurant, so hopefully they will remove this most bizarre message

A small quaint restaurant on the high street with enclosed outside garden area. Good varied menu with a twist. Excellent food and service, very attentive, background music playing. Started off many years ago as a British pub, now run by two brothers.
