    We booked for lunch and had a really good experience. Staff were attentive and helpful. I am Coeliac and there was plenty of choice for me which I loved. Food was very good. Nice combinations of flavours. Would definitely go there again.

    Lovely food, we had a problem with one dish but the staff were very accommodating and didn’t charge us for it. Service was excellent and the food on the whole was very good. Good range of options, including Vego and gluten free.

    The food was amazing, the service was less then. No communication between staff, drinks forgotten or at best a 30 minute wait and little effort to resolve the situation.

    Another fabulous meal, can’t fault Rodney and his staff in anything ever in well over 15 years. Always friendly, service outstanding and the food is amazing, we always bring people visiting us here and they are never disappointed. Always a pleasure to dine here and we will be back again soon. Special mention for the apple cinnamon pancake dessert, every one had to try it and it was superb.

    The food that was served had so many complex flavours that revealed themselves as you ate each mouthful and it was all delicious. This is where my family goes for special occasions and over the many years, it has never let us down with the quality of food and good service.
