Had a great lunch, bbq ribs unbelievable and loads of them !! Excellent service from our waitress, ? Betty, v helpful and friendly. Lovely atmosphere. Would definitely eat there again. One thing, not really important but I would prefer a plate to a wooden board.

A quirky place with old church chairs and unfussy surroundings. A warm welcome and an excellent light lunch. Will visit again when we are in the area
