Perfect meal, exceptional staff!
Shame it was soo quiet but on the other hand this suited us perfectly...
Only one other table occupied and they gave us a table of 6 for a meal for 4 so great social distancing and fantastic food!

I absolutely love this place. Went for the bottomless brunch for 2 people and as usual service and food was excellent, the only problem I have is deciding on what cheeses to have 😊 Will definitely be back soon its a must for anyone that likes to graze and chat over a few drinks.

The restaurante is absolutely beautiful and has such a warming and welcoming atmosphere. The staff were so helpful and food was to die for! I will definitely be returning after lockdown and be recommending to more friends and family for sure! There were a few cheese and meat options unavailable due to the impending lockdown but this has only enticed us to come back to taste them! Will be seeing you in December for sure!

We went when they first opened and found the amount of meat to cheese offered was not good but we have been back and it was perfect, the choice of meats and cheese is great and the fact they are all English made is a great showing off our local products.

Booked as a last minute thing as was local to the area. Waitress was amazing told us all about bottomless grazing which was great and she was so friendly. From talks from another table it sounded like she was new which makes her a great asset to porters. Will 100% recommend to other family and friends that visit the area.

Quaint and quiet but with a great atmosphere. The staff are amazing, just enough attentive but not too much. The food is superb with a broad choice of local and U.K. sourced foods. Highly recommend.
