Called in whilst staying locally. Would not revisit. Several customers had drunk too much and using bad language.

Ate here a couple of evenings last month. Dining area pretty small and table close together and no real privacy. Food okay but nothing special and chef seems to overdo the gravy! Wouldn't choose here for a special night out.
