Made my first visit of 2018 the second week in March and it was lovely to be back. The atmosphere was as good as ever and the food still great.
I was supposed to be being "good" and chef did me a fantastic "cottage" salad on the first night, but on the second I gave in and had the mushroom risotto. Boy was it good!!!
Creamy and filling and tasty with no scrimping on the parmesan cheese either.
Desserts still are a little limited,but then that's just me and in the end the range of flavours of lovely creamy icecream and hot chocolate pudding keep me purrrrrrfectly happy.
As always the staff were lovely and it was a real pleasure to be back at my favourite table which they always try and keep for me when I ring and book.
Looking forward to calling in again in June!!!

We have been here a few times and tended to stick with same food but this time decided to try a few other choices
They were busy so seemed quite a long time for service whether drinks or food
The food when it turned up was not very warm and by time we got to the middle it was cold, we called them over and told the waitress, she actually felt the food with her fingers and when she came back the food had been put in the microwave, and was what we had returned
Although it was now hot we were not so keen on eating it.
They didn’t reduce our bill and didn’t seem to care about our experience
Never again

Rang with the off chance they may have a table on a Saturday within the next 15 to 30mins they did always a nice welcome great service and excellent food.
Starter of cheese and garlic bread they don't skimp on the cheese.
Cottage calzone always amazing I had Fungi risotto for a change.
Beautiful chocolate pudding and sauce and Bannofi pie a must.
certainly filled up before we left.
