We visited with a large group in July. As per usual, we were bursting at the seems after our visit. The food is fantastic and everything was cooked to perfection. Even the fussy eater loved his meal! All of the staff were friendly and accommodating, too. We will be back!

We attend on Monday evening for the new burger evening. The food was fantastic. You can personalise your meal to suit your own taste. If you don't fancy burger there is a small menu, with alternative choices. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We will come again.
