Nice meal, friendly staff, starters a wee bit too 'gastro pub' for my taste. I prefer basic pub grub fare myself. value for money nonetheless!!

Choc fudge cake, toffee sponge pudding and profiteroles all get the thumbs... More

It is not possible to give this place any less than the 5* which it deserves. We were visiting from England and popped in here for dinner.

Myself and 2 friends visited for lunch on a Saturday. We hadn't booked but that was the a problem as even though it was busy and lots of reserved tables they found us a table. Service was quick and the young girl and gentleman who waited on us were great. Couldn't do enough. Food was brilliant. Best tomato soup I... More
