We have eaten here several times as a couple and with friends. On every occasion the food has been excellent, in taste and presentation, as is the service.
The older part of the building has real charm and the restaurant has a large airy conservatory on the side. Also there is a very large car park
which is important to us.

[$] The food was NOT WORTH IT, in fact I would have refused to pay [$] for it. The starters were fancy (except the soup) but the rest was just standard pub grub. We wouldn't recommend this place.Long version:[...]As we arrived we waited at the restaurant desk for a few minutes whilst a lad (18ish) was sorting something out on the till, he then walked away and mumbled something to us.... We looked at each other and laughed...Got seated in the end no problems, waited a good 15 minutes before our order was taken, although others had been asked before us and they had arrived after us (not that big of an issue).Starter arrived and was lukewarm/cold (black pudding dish), soup was hot but nothing special.... Main course arrived (two roast beef), beef was good and tasty, roast potatoes had obviously been cooked earlier in the day and then deep fat fried to order, so cold inside and extremely over cooked on the outside, yorkshire pudding was massive but overcooked and burnt on the edges. Onions were burnt but tucked in underneath the beef/mash to presumably hide them. We request 'some new potatoes', we got new potatoes... haha an easy mistake to be fair. The new roast potatoes then came but unfortunatly were still extremely hard on the outside the same (albeit now hot & covered in hot fat/oil).The lady asked if all was ok with the food and I said well not really the potatoes were inedible, she said do you want me to replace them.... as she walked away with our plates.... hahaPuddings were good, chocolate fondant and chocolate cheesecake. Staff were friendly and helpful but they seemed over worked as we kept needing ask for more water etc We waited for about 10 minutes but no staff had come past us for us to ask for the bill, so we didn't bother waiting (as we had already handed over our voucher) so just left.

Well presented food with very good service. My only grumble is the price of soft drinks £4.40 for a pint of Pepsi is a bit "pricey".

We went as a family on a weekday afternoon with two children. The food was very nice with delicate sandwiches, fresh warm scones and some small fancy cakes. The dining area had only one other group there so it was very quiet. Very enjoyable but I am glad we had a two for one offer as it would have been expensive for what is was if paying full price.

WE WERE TWO COUPLES WHO ARE FRIENDS AND CHOOSE DIFFERENT VENUES EACH TIME WE MEET UP. WE CHOSE THIS RESTAURANT FOR LOCATION AND TO ENJOY THE RESTAURANT GROUNDS AND AFTER THE MEAL THE LOUNGE AREA. THE RESTAURANT WAS COMFORTABLE AND INVITING, THE FOOD WAS OF A HIGH QUALITY AND THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. THEY OFFER A SET MENU WITH A VARIED CHOICE WHICH HAD SOMETHING ON IT TO SUIT ALL OF US. ENJOYABLE EVENING, WOULD VISIT AGAIN.
