Bland food, dictatorial head waiter, strange decor, way over priced

Weather allowed lunch on the patio - very pleasant surroundings, excellent service from Rachel, & delicious food. As the menu demonstrates, this is not a place for 'cheap pub grub' but the price is fair for the quality and presentation of the food provided.

Excellent Find in th country

Enjoyed our meal very much.. Good atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food. Only suggestion I would have is perhaps for £7.50 maybe there could be a few more strawberries and 2 scoops of ice cream to make this particular dessert value for money? Will most definitely be returning.

Great spot for Sunday lunch.

Went for a family lunch, the weather was excellent and so we were able to sit outside. The food was first class and the service unassuming but professional.
