Only ordered food as I only had ten pounds on me. A very nice ham sandwich and fries. The owner brought me a cafetiere of coffee... More

Went today for Sunday lunch and didn't know what to expect. Boy, were we all knocked out by the welcome, the ambiance and the food. This place is a jewel and I am worried that a good review will make it difficult to book a table 😊. The four of us cleaned every plate, not because they were small portions... More

Visited as part of a group of 16 for a family Xmas meal. The food was excellent, as was the service. We were a little rowdy, but we're tolerated, and made to feel very welcome. Great little place to eat!
