Service was slow but we were told that they were much much busier than expected for a Tuesday lunchtime . The special of watercress soup was quite a hefty price for a small bowl of soup! My husband had the pheasant special which he had to have a steak knife to cut as it was tough! He said the taste was ok but nothing to write home about. However my crab and truffle fries was delicious.

Warm and welcoming. A relaxing drink at the bar with old friends. There was no pressure to rush to our table. The charming staff were very patient with us as we chatted away before ordering our food. Two streaks, one fish and chips and a bowl of moules......absolutely delicious. Followed by crepes and vanilla ice cream. A lovely way to spend a relaxing Tuesday evening. Definitely be going again.
