It was great time for family dinner on the special day.
Steaks were perfect.
We had starters and steaks, I ordered one dessert, but couldn’t eat, I was so full.

Three of us dined and all enjoyed our meals. One had warm lamb salad which she could not fault and really enjoyed, myself and my wife had baked blue cod - chef's special which was cooked perfectly. My wife does not eat mushrooms which was an ingredient in the sauce with this, but the chef obliged by substituting it with home made tartare sauce which was lovely. Overall the evening was very enjoyable and we enjoyed our drinks in the bar before hand. We will definitely return again. Many thanks.

Being a Monday we were in the courtyard as opposed to the restaurant which was fine as it has a very interesting decor. Lots to look at.
Very generous food servings so don't over order. Friendly staff.
We will go again

Lovely meal. Steaks were great. Service was a little sluggish, but nothing major. Room temperature was a little cool to start with, but was corrected while we ate our meal.

The steak was perfect and there was plenty of it, definitely recommend! The cream brûlée was very nice.but Ice cream was disappointed when It came out, as we thought it was berry flavored ice cream but was vanilla ice cream with berry sauce on top.
