Ate in Bistro Friday evening had booked which is recommended excellent service and food. Shepherds pie was delicious served with buttered greens and red cabbage. Husband rated Creme Brûlée as best he had.

Been for dinner before and stayed there before. Last night went with a friend who had not been up to the area before. As always, staff great, atmosphere wonderful and food absolutely superb. Definitely worth a visit and I very much look forward to returning.

A very pleasant experience with excellent pub-grub and excellent and attentive service. The fish, chips and mushy peas were excellent - a rather large portion of beautifully crispy battered fish with hand-cut chips and a small bowl of mushy peas. Cost was reasonable.
