Short menu with not a lot of choice for vegetarians, but what we had was delicious. Pleasant surroundings and friendly service.

Both enjoyed the excellent fixed menu. Mackerel starter, cod on anchovy potatoes, I had superb pork belly. Portions a little on the small side but beautifully cooked. Staff very pleasant and good service levels. Will definitely return. Highly recommended. I personally prefer the ground floor as we find the upstairs a little strangely decorated and not so intimate.

A family visit to try the fixed menu. 3 adults and one child. (Total bill £100) The food was very good with a good veggie option. We had the 3 course menu at £23 per head. The portion size was a little on the small side but well cooked and presented. The starters were okay in portion size but mains... More

After much planning , our sons birthday meal was just spot on . Thanks to all for allowing us to bring a cake and rather large balloons. To make the night was the meal which was absolutely fantastic.

I opted out of dessert to make room for more house red wine.My friend chose from the early bird menu and her 3 courses were polished off without complaint.The dining atmosphere... More
