Great place for a Sunday late dinner as nearly every place is closed. I find the food quite nice actually. Friendly staff and very helpful. Thanks to the chef who made yummy fresh salads. My kids love it.

Now under new management so a way to go to bring it back up to standard. The dining area is close to the bar area so noise can be a factor. Food is typical pub food.
