I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed last night (Valentine's). The food was superb. Thank you to you, your wonderful chef and staff for a lovely evening.

Just to say thank you for Christmas lunch - everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the food was excellent. So much nicer than slogging away over a stove at home!

I would just like to say a big Thank You for our Christmas Party. Everyone who attended said the food and service was brilliant and that they thoroughly enjoyed it.
We visited your premises today for the first time and were very impressed by the courtesy that was shown to us and would be obliged if you can give Ian & Hannah a pat on the back to show our appreciation.
Thanks for a great meal and atmosphere on Saturday night. "Mr Bustard" was great - he was not only able to talk to me about accountancy but he could talk to my mate about beers. I bet he could discuss lacrosse and footy equally well!

We had a great time at your Game Evening recently. Both myself and my guests enjoyed it - thank you very much.
This restaurant is a little gem I stumbled upon by accidnt and cannot recommend it highly enough. The menu caters for those looking for gourmet bar food as well as the ultimate culinary experience. The setting is idyllic and has been restored to a very high standard. I went with a wheel chair user who found the access to be great and the proprietor couldn't have done more to accommodate us. It was the best dining experience I've had in many years.
Just like to say a big thank you to you and your staff. We had a really pleasant evening last Saturday and you made my mother's birthday very special. The food and wine were excellent, compliments to the chef. We'll certaiinly be back soon.
