It was very heavy rain and we had a toddler with us so was panicking we'd get wet. The staff were fantastic, sorted us a lovely table undercover near the heaters. They couldn't do enough for us and the food was just beautiful. Can't wait to go again. Thank you all

Our evening was lovely, they have done everything they can to keep you warm. While sitting outside it would of been nice if there was a designated smoking area, I didn’t appreciate the owners wife smoking behind us during the current pandemic. One of our pizzas was slightly undercooked but no check back was made so we couldn’t raise it. But overall the food was lovely.

Food was nice, the service wasn't great as you couldn't get anyones attention (over via the app but more extra bits, to ask a question etc)
Outdoor setting was freezing, the heaters aren't very effective and seating uncomfortable. Very few covered areas (we were lucky to get one)

Absolutely amazing. Ellie and Mary were amazing! In fact all the staff were. I would recommend this place to anyone. We are actually guests of the hotel staying in the cottages and I can’t express how covid safe the place is.

Waited about 40 minutes for food and order came out wrong despite adding details to the comments box when ordering.
A scuffle started to break out and we had children with us. Staff did manage to control the situation. It was more like last orders and not 6pm.
Wouldn’t recommend for families.

Girls and staff at this place is a real credit! They go beyond and are so nice. Even the elegance how they handle difficult customers. Only criticism is I believe the manager/owner walking about looking miserable really doesn’t help it’s guests relax and enjoy

friendly welcome. We felt a little cold as it was outside dining and staff brought us blankets.
Only criticism was that the staff didn't come over to ask if everything was ok or if we wanted anything like a coffee top up. Food was very good and reasonably priced.
Will definitely return.

This was set up brilliantly - safe organisation to enter the seating area and orders via the app which was attached to the table. Even though it was really busy, the service times were reasonable and the waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

As we drove in a drinks delivery lorry was blocking the road and we were held in a queue for over 20 minutes even though there was plenty of room for the lorry to have pulled over - no cars could get in or out and the drivers just seemed to find it amusing. Full COVID check in procedures were followed and ordering and paying was done via an app although signal was not overly strong. When our starters arrived the waitress knocked my partners drink over which saturated her trousers and handbag - which on a cold but sunny April evening made it quite uncomfortable - they did supply a blanket.
The food was good quality - especially the starters which were tasty.

Lovely place, fantastic service nothing was too much bother for the staff. Very well organised. Music was a right level to hear but could still have a conversation. Only the terrace tables had heaters which made the extra seating they have placed outside the terrace a little chillier. Only downside was they didn't tell us that the table is only booked for 1.5hours then you have to leave which cut the night short.
