A recent visit for a midday meal, met with a warm greeting and friendly smile, the staff are really friendly and helpful. Good range of food on both the menu and specials board. Fantastic quality meal and plenty of it. Shame we live so far away otherwise this place would be a regular haunt for us

this is a little gem. Their sunday lunch is lovely offering a very good selection of vegetables and meat. The staff are very friendly too. We have yet to try their desserts but have always been so full up from the main.
