The atmosphere was dull, there were only 6 people in despite it being Christmas and a good location. The reason being the food was poor. The starters were not good, un imaginative and no seasoning. The mains were again unseasoned and lacking flavour. Very average, not even worth the groupon. If we had paid full price, we would have asked for our money back!

My wife and I went for a Christmas day out. The service was very good but the meal was appalling. Our starters were excellent but then we had both ordered pork belly for our main course. It consisted of two slabs of greasy fat which we could not finish. We had also ordered honey roast vegetables which seemed to have avoided being cooked and bypassed the honey. All in all it was one of the worst meals we have ever had and we will not be back. My wife was also extremely sick an hour later. Our day was ruined.

A good meal, but let down by the vegetables, especially the side dish of honey roast root vegetables which sounded delightful. This was merely a dish of shoestring carrot strips and anaemic hunks of boiled parsnip which were impossible to stab with a fork. When we told the lovely waitress, she took the dish away and a replacement later arrived, again, the insipid-looking parsnip strips were just too hard to eat. As we had already finished our main by this point we just gave up trying.

A lovely relaxed environment, with staff who made you feel welcomed and were courteous at all times. Excellent value for money, will definitely return.

Very disappointed about my evening, we order king scallops , halibut and confit of duck both main course were bad really poor standar, chef clearly didn't like or care about his dishes, a lack of professionalism from manager as well. Table next to us had a bad experience as well from their dishes.I really thing the restaurant has to have a major change of staff if they want to survived.Overall very poor , I left restaurant witn an empty stomach either my boyfriend.

Night was brilliant. We booked early enough so the resturant wasn't too busy. Menu had so much choice. My duck pate & pork belly were just lovely plus the cheese was a huge platter just as well we shared! Overall it was a lovely resturant

Enjoyed our meal. I had the pork belly which was really nice but needed either a little jus with it or perhaps a little apple based sauce to sharpen just a little.
