WHAT THE WIN­NER SAID:

To re­tain the ti­tle for the sec­ond year run­ning, is such a great achieve­ment and it is un­be­liev­able that we have won again. We have re­cently be­come a wed­ding venue and we are re­ally try­ing to push more things for­ward. Win­ning this award will help push us to­wards more spe­cial events and go that ex­tra step fur­ther. Bring on next year and hope­fully we can make it a hat trick! Thank you.

WHAT THE JUDGE SAID:

Th­ese are im­mac­u­late premises, with en­thu­si­as­tic, friendly and pro­fes­sional staff through­out. Al­though it’s against a road with noth­ing to at­tract the vis­i­tor in the im­me­di­ate vicin­ity, it had great at­mos­phere and was a lovely place to dine. The food was ac­tu­ally very good value, well-pre­sented and re­ally en­joy­able

— they seem to un­der­stand good food. The wines were rep­re­sen­ta­tive of their kind, we loved them. Every­thing about this place, from well-kept premises, qual­ity of fit­tings, su­perb toi­let fa­cil­i­ties and high qual­ity fur­ni­ture, all adds to the im­pres­sion that it is a bit spe­cial. Would we re­turn? Ab­so­lutely, and soon!
