Food was very good, not good size portions. Crumble and custard was a bit of joke, not much chance of drowning crumble in the custard, see photo. Service not too great, had to ask twice to get our drinks.

Having not visited here for many years I was not sure what to expect. But we had a fantastic meal. Some different items on the menu and a large specials board. Highly recommend here.
