We were staying in the area for Christmas and came here for Christmas Dinner. The food was plentiful and superb and the staff were brilliant. Considering it was Christmas Day the price was good. All 9 of us had a great time. Would definitely recommend

Called in for a breakfast as we have a caravan at Heather View. Staff always friendly and dogs are allowed in which is good. Food always good and they catered for our daughter which is gluten free. Would recommend for a meal or even a drink if you are in the area.
