Booking is pretty much essential now. There tonight with family. They were unbelievably busy. Quality of the food was excellent. Staff were attentive and friendly. Really reasonably priced. Great night. The specials were good. I mean stunning. Can’t recommend this place highly enough.

Booked in for my sisters birthday. Fabulous meal as always. Guinea fowl special was stunning. Normally we know what we want to order but the menu changed recently so we have to check. Chorizo sausage from local butchers Ethersons. Amazing. Service as always was fabulous.

A delicious early bird menu! Melt in the mouth indeed! And the desserts were to die for - the chocolate torte with salted caramel was delicious. Many thanks.

Really enjoyed our meal. The early bird special of three tapas choices for £10.95 turned out to be excellent value. So we ordered six dishes. The mixed board of cheese and ham which was a £2 upgrade. The garlic chicken. The pork fillet. The meatball....More
