Went for Sunday lunch as a change to a roast! The staff are really polite and welcoming. They're also very professional. We didn't feel at all rushed and enjoyed our meal in a relaxing atmosphere. The food was lovely! With very adequate portions. The premises are clean and bright. We will definitely be returning to this little gem
