Very friendly staff & excellent service! We had ribeye & chicken burger, both excellent. Chips & tobacco onions very light, dry & crispy, yum ! And the chocolate brownie with black cherry sorbet was delicious!

Homely, relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff. Come here a lot for food and it never disappoints. Personal favourite from today was the chocolate fudge cake with whiskey ice cream. Will be back again soon.
