We come here for Sunday evening meals as there are not many places open for meals after lunch. It is always good and we have taken friends there.

We currently have 3 - 4 vegetarian options on our menu and as we make all of our meals fresh, we can usually deal with any specific request should a guest want something not on the menu.
