Nipped in here just before it got busy, turned out it was very popular and with good reason. The food was excellent, served quickly and with very pleasant service.

The service here was very friendly, thanks to the very nice barmaid. The food is reasonably priced and good choice. Would have been made even more delicious if it was a little hotter. Sticky toffee pudding was the highlight

Nice place, the staff were attentive (I admitted to a cold, and was offered honey and lemon with my tea) and food was quick. We had soup to start - this would have been a meal by itself depending on your appetite. I had the...More
