    Food and service good as usual the chips they are using are too thin so therefore get cold very quickly. The fork app on the other hand is very frustrating to use as originally it wouldn't let me put in the right amount of people so then when I went to change it the booking defaulted to 4.30 so I had to ring the balaclava anyway and the staff were very receptive

    The staff friendliness and willingness to meet all our needs and requests was exceptional. The food service was spot on including swap out of sides and sauces to meet dietary requirements. The food was great, especially the steaks. Thanks for a wonderful night.

    Food was lovely but missed extra sauce that was stated on menu and steak was well under 350grm we paid for. But overall we always come here and the staff are always exceptional and friendly. Will be back again and highly recommend as the chef is brilliant ????????

    We were very happy with the friendly staff, not only the welcome, ordering the food (Ben was lovely) but also the bar staff. My only complaint would be the cost of the meal. The meals were plentiful for the price we paid. There was no Seniors menu.which was a little disappointing. However, Ben said there is a new menu out next week so hopefully the Seniors menu will be back. We will certainly return as your restaurant was a favourite of ours prior to Covid19.

    The staff were very pleasant and helpful, but your food was not the best. I had beer batter fish and chips and I’m pretty sure it was frozen fish. My daughter had a chicken Caesar salad and she said it was ver watery and my son in law had the pan cooked flake. He is unable to voice his opinion so I tasted it and it was not very pleasant at all.

    Third time in the last month. Definitely going back for more of the new way of dining and the uncrowned, not noisy atmosphere with good plain food available and superb but simple service.

    I booked via the hotel web page, and was contacted the day of the booking, to confirm numbers on arrival I was advise of the seating prodigal and what we could and could not do, and advise of the time frame of sitting, the serve delivered by the staff was very good and clearly communicated. we ordered the beef cheeks and vege and the fishnchips. Both were very delicious and we really enjoyed our mains. great and the experience post Covid was excellent.
