Shared the cheese platter with the other half, it was lovely, surprisingly accompanied by some freshly baked bread which stole the show! If you're not into cheese the onion rings are also amazing!! Brilliant value, service and food, triple thumbs up!!

From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful. Despite being a busy day for kitchen service our food was prompt, hot and tasty. Great selection of beers and wines. Will definitely visit again.

We went here for lunch on a sunny Saturday and found it absolutely fabulous! Although the food seemed a little pricey, when it came out it was clear that it was worth the money as the quality was fantastic. The garden was lovely to sit...More
