This is a great place to come for a birthday meal or a celebration, the prices are a higher that where I would go on a regular basis but the food quality is really good and you do get what you pay for here

Arrived at lunchtime, and was greeted by a very pleasant bar lady (Esther), I asked if they were doing lunch, she explained that, that Chef has walked out and while they are doing lunch, there will be a delay and they have a limited selection. OUR CHOICE WAS TO STAY. There was a family group of 4 on the table behind me and a group of 3 on another table. It turns out that there was 1 member of staff a young lady, in the kitchen and Esther on the bar and waiting at the tables. How she coped I have no idea. Nearly in tears, she was serving at the bar and running into the kitchen to get and serve orders. YES we had to wait for our drinks. YES we had to wait for our meal. Again it was OUR CHOICE TO STAY, but when it arrived it was fabulous. Nicely cooked. well presented, and HOT. Esther could not apologize enough for the delays. Given the lack of staff, they did a wonderful job.
We will be back.
A big THANK YOU to Esther for her service. and for being human.

Note to management: Whatever you are paying Esther and the young lady in the kitchen .... is NOT ENOUGH.. You should have been at the helm.

Popped in for a quick bite to eat on the way home from holiday having followed signs from the A12. Each of our party ordered baguettes which were fairly basic, came with no cutlery or relish etc. nor were these offered by the staff. The table top was sticky (probably more to do with the treatment used rather than the state of cleanliness) and it was sometime difficult to pick our glasses up.

The premises are pleasant enough and there is obviously a lot going on in the evenings judging by the posters on the wall but as a passing traveller I'd recommend giving this one a miss.
