I go here quite often with a Ladies Group, the food is excellent and you can get small portions if you wish. Very reasonably priced also a good variety of starters, mains and desserts. We have already booked for Christmas.

Having been several times before for lunch, we took my mother for dinner. Evening prices are obviously a bit higher than lunch but the choice is just as good, food is hot, fresh and tasty and reasonably priced. Decent portion sizes and friendly staff.
