Had a great meal with friends last night. The food was as good as ever and never fails to please. Thank you for providing the Gluten free options, they were delicious and I do want more of the home made Raspberry Sorbet!

Visited with my parents and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals! I had the hake whilst my parents had the pie off the specials menu. Service was excellent and we will return!

Great food, excellent value for money. You can fancy every dish on the menu, and not be disappointed when it arrives. Wine list also offers a good choice at reasonable prices. Booking advised - it's popular.
