    The pumpkin risotto today was immense.

    Try the steak and chips. I had venison, which was awesome, but my fiancee's rib eye was something else!

    Amazing burger - was taken off the menu for a while. If it's not there just ask. Chips are bloody good too.

    Better in the evenings than brunch when service is poor and dishes all seem to be missing vital things (like no toast with salmon and eggs, no butter).

    When booking your table, remember to ask not to be placed by the entrance... But apart from this, the beef Sunday roast was amazing, as well as the banoffee.

    Food is too expensive for what it is. Trying to be gourmet but failing.

    Roast beef was good. Good meat and nice accompaniments. My only gripe is the service was slightly lacklustre

    Frozen food :( Fish fingers served cold in the inside, waitress looked not to believe us. After a microwave blast, it was good enough. Quality is not that right for this price tag. Not recommended.

    Service is rude and glacially slow.

    Today no ingredients for the advertised cocktails. Wine by the glass? Answer "barely none". Fine, if you can't be bothered neither can I. Off up the road to the Peasant.

    If the above two are fully booked, head to the Well for 3rd best, desserts are average and you will need to order drinks at the bar as waiters are great at avoiding eye contact

    don't have a starter or any main other than mussels not worth it... Not for 20 a pop. Too much money without enough to show, ask the manager if he ever gets round to your table... Or is it a her?

    Sunday roast at the Well is quite something. That said I'm having wild rabbit and bacon pie and greens. It's all good and great wine selection.
