We met David and Emmie, the new Managers and were a little unsure as they... More

We popped over for a bank holiday meal and I haven't been in here for years. What have I been missing. I ordered the smoky lamb stew served in a loaf of bread and it was amazing. I was worried as I could not eat it all until Tanya the waitress pointed out that I had done really well as... More

An excellent choice of great roasts, with good presentation, always hot and quick service. Best to book up to ensure a seat. Good home cooked food. Good service.

Have been here on a number of occasions. The food is always excellent, but service can struggle slightly at busy times.
