    negative review  This was our first time eating here, we went on Sunday 3/3/19 with 2 adults and 2 children . The service was very slow and poor to be honest apart from 1 young girl. They had run out of chocolate ice cream firstly then when we asked what selection of cakes they had the answer was none they had ran out and it wasn’t busy. The children ate off the kids menu and this included 1 scoop of ice cream. The kids were still hungry so the waitress said about a 3 scoop portion which we paid £2:50 per 1/2 scoop (not even a full scoop) £10 total for 4 half scoops of ice cream. My parter ordered a chocolate brownie for Dessert and about 15 mins after the kids had finished their dessert and I had finished a coffee the server came up and advised we couldn’t have the brownie due to running out of stuff . We asked for the bill and my partner didn’t get a dessert. The bill still didn’t come so we had to go up and just pay at the door. The food was really nice but overall experience was poor and £10 for four half scoops of ice cream I thought was a bit extreme.

  • 5 star review  We had a lovely meal tonight. The food was delicious, the kids polished off theirs too which were both adult mains that were by no means small. The setting is gorgeous, as is the restaurant itself and the resin tables are stunning. Nice welcoming feel to it with lots of interesting things to catch your attention. We will definitely be back! �

    4 star review  I ate at your restaurant for lunch and dinner over the weekend last week. Food and service were great! In particular, our Sunday roast dinner (beef) was cooked to our taste (rare/mefium) which really is superb! in fact, all our meals were so tasty!! We will be back!
