Four of us enjoyed a superb lunch from an extensive menu. Excellently cooked by Julie in the kitchen. Friendly welcome and very polite and attentive staff. Easy to find and plenty of car parking spaces. Will definitely be back.

The family visited in Wednesday night which is any pizza with a free drink. The pizza was excellent and is the best available in my opinion in the area. Well done
