We enjoyed the food - a decent Sunday roast, generous portions of fish and chips and harissa chicken and a chicken Caesar salad that was fine (although could have had more dressing and anchovies). Service was quite inattentive and one member of staff kept banging the back of my wife's chair which annoyed her - my impression was staff were poorly or un-trained and weren't that interested in the customers. Pity, because food and wine were good.

I think the food reviews on here are based on how well you order as its a bit hit and miss. 4 of us went for dinner and the lamb ( absolutely fantastic ) / harissa chicken were great but the Sri Lankan curry wasn't anything special and their signature burger had nothing signature about it and was pretty bad. The starters were really good (chicken skewers / seafood skewers and brie salad) ( had zero salad with it )
Don't order the gluten free hazelnut pudding its quite literally a hot mess.

The issue we had though was from the moment we got there to the moment we left we had to wave down a member of staff to order every single stage of the meal. We had sat for 15 mins and had to wave someone down for drinks. We waved someone down to order food / more drinks / pudding / bill. Not once did anyone come over in any reasonable amount of time to check in or ask us if we were ready. At one point we ordered our next round of drinks when they brought the first lot just in case. I hate over attention but this was just very lax and this was the main let down of the meal. Atmosphere is great / food decent and decor quaint, staff just need a bit of training.

Lovely meal with my friend. Lovely interior and well catered for COVID precautions. Great food and drinks. After our main course it took a little while before we were offered dessert menu but overall a lovely experience.

This was our first visit since the lock down, and new owners. The menu has changed, and not in a good way. There were only the 2 of us in the restaurant, plus 4 in the outside area. It was one of our favourite places for lunch, but we will not be rushing back.

Recently changed hands. The menu has completely changed which is a shame. We loved it before.
Food was good but not as good as before sadly.

Good food, as usual. Duck salad main was particularly tasty. Understand it has recently changed ownership- will be interesting to see what changes are made (hope not too many).

It was valentines night. The food was good however the service or I should say the speed of the service was very very slow. There were enough serving staff but they seemed disorganised and inattentive. Maybe the speed issue was with the kitchen staff. Still the restaurant was busy but not full.
I may go back as the food was good maybe not on a busy night.

I have been to this restaurant several times now and it is fabulous. A warm and friendly welcome is followed by great food and efficient service. Food and drinks are reasonably priced too which is a bonus.

Food and service was very good and the warm duck salad I had as a main was fab. Didn't realise when booking that there was going to be live music. Whilst the singer was good, it was a bit difficult to have a conversation due to the volume and as that was the purpose of the reason to visit, my fellow diner and myself were disappointed. Also, a warning to the ladies, in the Ladies, it was very disconcerting to sit down to business so to speak and find the wall opposite the loo is a huge mirror!
