    Excellent, attentive and friendly service. The food was nicely presented and we all enjoyed our respective meals. We will definitely go back soon.

    The service was pretty good but I’m sorry to say that the food looked ok but in reality was not great. My wife had the chicken pie which she said was really good. My lamb was sort of ok but not great - a little tough and the fat not rendered down. We both thought the vegetables looked fine but were not brilliant. E don’t like vegetables overbooked but as an example - the very large carrots were sliced in half lengthways - probably steamed but were not cooked enough. It took a lot of effort to saw through them. The broccoli was similar. Gravy very thin and tasteless. My creme brûlée was curdled. In fairness they agreed and replaced it with ice cream at no charge. Pleasant atmosphere but sorry - we won’t be going out of our way to go back.

    The service time was dreadful. We waited nearly an hour to be served. I would point out that it was because there was only one young man working. He was extremely cheerful and did his best in very difficult circumstances.

    We were in the garden area which was lovely and spacious - food was very good and the service was excellent - a nice venue and open all day, which is great for a social or business meeting.
