I had fish and chips - the lunchtime portion is excellent value at £3.95 - they create the fish and chips as one of their best dishes and it was! My husband had the steak pie and was disappointed - felt the gravy was too watery. Service was excellent - very attentive and friendly. Would definitely go back for fish... More

Had a nice meal here, food was good, prices were good, lots of space, place was clean, great for couples, families, etc. We're planning on going back. Took 1 star away because we were new customers and our server was more interested in their friends than us, pity, it would have been five stars otherwise. Nice place though.

We go to this place a few times a year since it's (just about) walking distance from our house. It's never that busy, which is a shame as the food is excellent, the service fast and the prices very fair. In particular, the fish and chips is great.

Small menu but good food served. The fish is excellent, the garlic mushrooms are great and the homemade steak pie great but too much. Service very good Will definitely be back
