In Longwatton to see family and came here for a quick sandwich on the sat which was great. So we decided to book for Sunday dinner which was lovely, really tasty and cooked well. Can't recommend it enough. Friendly staff that couldn't do enough for us. Would definitely visit again.

You may call me biased but believe me, if there was any faults with the service or food I... More
