Excellent food reasonably priced. But, on the day I was there the service was a tad slow. Been told by other users that this is NOT normal.

This has become mine and my partners de-facto location when people come to visit us for food and never fails to please anybody we take there.
My partner is a vegan and they have a dedicated menu for Vegans (they even have vegan chocolate, suitable bread starter option, Soya Milk for drinks and Vegan ice cream!).
The food portions are a good size and the food is always perfect!, the set menus are fantastically priced and the food is very very well made. We love to visit here and would (and have) highly recommended this restaurant to any and everybody!
We have never had any issues here, the staff are all lovely, friendly and professional and the layout means your not on top of each other which is a refreshing change!

After a lifetime in catering I feel it such a shame when the skill of the staff is not reflected in the surroundings. It's not rocket science to get an interior designer to make the place feel like a restaurant. It's totally devoid of any ambiance or atmosphere which leaves the excellent food and service wasted.

It wouldn't take much to make this the place to be in Lydney but every table except those reserved (3) with only a salt and pepper pot made it stark indeed. A ood culinary experience completely let down.
