We stopped here for lunch recently and appreciated the friendly service we received throughout our visit. The dining room was very cosy with the fireplace warming us on a cold overcast day. Our meals were quite good and reasonably priced. We enjoyed the entire experience.

We have been here about 3 times now and food is always decent and reasonably priced. They do specials quite a lot so there is a bit of variation and also offer oap meals for the smaller appetite. Don't recommend many eateries in the area but can't fault this place.

Would use again and would recommend. Ps Also had a recent visit earlier this month where I had the most devine onion soup.....
