This was our first visit and we will definitely return. A lovely homely menu,super friendly service, good potions,tasty home cooked food. We chose the three courses for 11.99. But I think you could choose one or two courses. I chose pate turkey dinner and trifle a delicious trio.

We went last night for a change but were pleasantly surprised at the size of the portions given. The meals I had was massive I had to bring half of it home as i couldn't eat it all.
