If flagstone floors, rustic furniture and cosy sofas are for you, then hurry along here! Helpful staff, tasty dishes and good parking are on offer. Just off M25 Junction 28, it's easy to miss but worth the detour.

Extremely generous bottomless brunch. Normally I find the food can be compromised at brunches but this was outstanding. Goats cheese salad was delicious! The amount of Prosecco we received was very generous and the staff were friendly and helpful - excellent customer service!

I didn't have any response. Would appear the service & food is hit & miss which is a shame we have been there many times & like the ambience very much.
