I wanted to thank you for a great lunch on Saturday. We found your menu was fantastic – we had mussels, steaks, warm duck salad and turkish delight ice cream all of which were perfectly cooked. The beers, wines and Durham gin were all excellent, the ambience was super and you went out of your way to help us by dropping us at our car. We all wanted to thank you and hope you will add this review to your collection of great comments by your satisfied customers

Friends introduced us to this impressive restaurant and we were

not disappointed. Everything from the welcoming staff to the amazing

food ( which I might add is a very reasonable price for such

quality) lived up to their reports. Thank you for a great visit.

Just to say what a wonderful find your restaurant was. I was

treated by friends to an absolutely delicious meal - half a dozen

oysters followed by mallard breast on caramelised onions in an orange

sauce - wonderful! Haven't enjoyed a meal out like that for a long

time! Great service by young staff on a busy Saturday night. Well done

and thank you.

Hi Paul

Just like to say how much my family enjoyed their meal last night.

The food was great and the service matched, the girls were great.   A lovely ambiance about the place, nobody felt out of theIr depth even the kids, we will be visiting again next time we’re up from South Yorks.

Yet again another delightful visit.  A very friendly welcome, followed by a 1st class meal and beer. The food here is amazing and is a sheer gastronomic delight.  If you want a first class meal with a  friendly atmosphere, then this is the place to go.    21st April 2012
