Staff very friendly & helpful my only cripe for the price l would have expected more than two small roast potatoes which were tucked hidden under the beef & Yorkshire pudd, my only disappointment. Quite expensive for a Sunday roast so l expected more.

Thoroughly enjoyed our weekday meal. Good service and excellent food. Excellent cured salmon starters followed by venison schnitzel and hake with chorizo and potatoes. Then couldn't resist the sticky toffee pudding, and very glad that I didn't.
