Glad we booked to eat early at 6:30 pm on a Friday night as the place got busy as the evening went on. Very good choice of 2 or 3 course meals at a fixed price.

Very pleasant and accommodating owners. Would have no hesitation in recommending. Really great meal. Only wish we have not been passing through to sample the ales and great selection of wines. Would definitely return if ever in the area again.
