We visited for the first time today, we live close by and have passed this place for a number of years. First of all they were busy but the staff appeared rather untrained. The girl who welcomed us almost looked supprised when we asked for a table. Having just walked in, it was not an unreasonable request. Next the menu... More

Phoned in advance which was just as well because they where booked up until 1.30pm. This was fine as we were not in a rush, so booked for 1.30 plus. Arrived and was immediately greeted by a smiling waitress who showed us straight to our table, (I'm still sitting as I type) and given a menu. I had Steak &... More

Stopped for tea and cake or scones. Service was good and correct. Nice and clean and the pots of tea were fine. However the scones were very poor. Obviously frozen and then probably defrosted in a microwave. Very small portions of jam. Have been before and then had cake which was good. Shame about the scones.

Visited this restaurant twice within one week and were very pleased both times. The staff were very welcoming on both occasions and were happy to talk about the history of the building which was once a railway station. The first time we went it was a Sunday and we chose the Roast Lamb dinner which was generous in size with... More

Have stopped here on a number of previous occasions, this time was afternoon tea for two. Excellent choice of both traditional 'afternoon tea' and some creative variations on a theme. We selected Victoria sponge and toasted tea cake with lashings of butter and jam .... and of course a large pot of tea. Thoroughly enjoyed these choices! We will be... More

We stopped here for breakfast to break up our journey. Our friends had been here before but we hadn't and we were really pleased we stopped. A shame it's so far away but next time we're passing through we will certainly stop again, hopefully around dinner time next as their menu for dinner looked really good too.

Returned to this friendly restaurant with my parents and we all enjoyed a lovely dinner, all home cooked and reasonably priced. Thank you to the chef and staff there.

We regularly go for breakfast here. Plenty of choice. We always have the full English which is made from local produce and is very tasty. We have never had to wait longer than it takes to cook it and is brought out to you nice and hot. Service is always prompt and all staff are friendly and polite. Nothing is... More

Wonderful friendly service and great well cooked fish and chips, with good prices. Spotlessly clean, But I'm afraid it was disappointing inside, no character or charm. Plain painted walls and the place had no atmosphere. It wasn't a good choice for an evening, maybe better if its lunch or coffee. Couldn't fault the food, service or the great choice on... More
