Dined Easter Monday tea time. Service as always good,food good and not too expensive. Ordered 2 glasses of wine and waiter advised us to purchase a bottle of wine as only couple of pounds more (took home 1/2 bottle!)

Up from Wales to visit took mum and dad for a late Mother's Day meal very well looked after excellent service food was served on real hot plates which meant every bite was warm to the end Well done nice to find great food in my old home town

It was seriously one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. Full of flavour, perfectly cooked. I don't usually eat lamb so it was an unexpected pleasure. Their food is always top-notch and well worth a visit. Portions are always generous, yet I wanted more of the minted lamb burger, despite being full!

Friendly staff. Surprisingly good food. Ample parking. I really love spending time here. My only gripe would be the decor appears a little dated. Some would say it adds to the charm.

Went here for an early evening meal and was pleasantly surprised by the menu and the addition of some lovely, well considered specials. We received attentive, but not cloying service from Adam. He was knowledgeable about the menu and was able to offer recommendations that were spot on to our tastes. Will definitely be back!

It took about an hour after the starter before the mains came, we weren't offered puddings! The lady serving... More
