A weekend away and we ate here for both nights because we were so impressed with the food and the staff. It was an added bonus that we got a "buy one meal get the second free" The fish and chips were spot on.

Booked a table as they are offering 2 for 1 on meals during November. Bit disappointed there were no skewers available but lasagna and carbonara were excellent and portions very large. Nice cocktail menu, the "Gin Bramble" is fantastic. Staff friendly and efficient.
