Found this place on Friday evening on the way back from visiting relatives. Was a really welcoming place. Friendly staff and really good food. The chef knows how to make good, hearty food. We will be coming back soon.

Popped in for our tea on the way back from a day out. The food was amazing in both presentation and taste. Great value for money and even catered for my fiancee who is gluten free! Will definitely be visiting again and can't wait.
