Never had a bad meal here and no different this time. Staff always friendly, food has always been tasty, and well presented. Service polite and friendly. Would recommend and will be returning.

We manged to get a table by booking at the last minute. Really glad we did. We were greeted at the door by the manager and the staff were so friendly and efficient. The best Sunday roast ever and soup to die for!

Although we arrived without a booking on a busy Saturday lunchtime, the helpful front of house staff managed to squeeze us after a short wait. This friendly relaxed restaurant never fails to please, with innovate seasonal dishes. Fantastic chips with thyme sea salt.
