I have been here on many occasions with family and friends. We have always enjoyed the food which is varied and well cooked. They cater well for diners with food allergies and inteloerances. The menu changes regularly so repeated vists do not become monotonous.

Great food and service. Burgers and chips were delicious and they also do a healthy option of salads. Great service and a lovely selection of great guns and wines. Love their loyalty card scheme too.
