Nice garden area. Good food. Extensive menu plus a specials board. Free parking. Dogs welcome. Had scampi and chips which were lovely. Hubby ordered a prawn jacket potato which he thought was a little small for its price. Wouldn't stop us going back though.

Very nice setting, lovely place to sit outside or in. We all had different meals and they were all excellent. The service was very pleasant and relaxed. I'm looking forward to returning, so I can try other items on the menu.

Had grilled bass with new potatoes and fresh vegetables followed by a delicious gluten free Bakewell tart served with cream . So good to have a separate gluten free menu. Will certainly visit again when in the area
