Visited here twice and not disappointed. First night was lambs liver, beautifully cooked and served with fresh veg. Second night I had Chicken with Stilton and apricot sauce - yummy. The food is freshly cooked and you do have to wait but it is definitely worth it. Worth booking for a Friday night as it gets busy

Excellent. Cannot fault the service or the food or the value for money. We visited with our rescue greyhound who was welcomed with open arms in the bar with traditional restaurant tables and chairs. We were served promptly and the food was freshly cooked to order. Our bill came to £17 for two generous sized mains and two soft drinks... More
