After the last great lunch we decide to come again with the in-laws. Once again the food was excellent and the service from Tyra was, once again, superb. Will definitely visit again .... but may leave it till after Christmas. Highly recommended.

Had a lovely Saturday lunch. Very friendly staff who put up with our odd requests while keeping the kids entertained, especially Jayden who was even scrabbling on the floor at one point! Good quality food, smart interior, dog friendly, sunny terrace. Thanks
