We booked for 8 people at the last minute and we were accommodated with excellent service. The food was really good with quite a few specials. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and with tasty desserts as well and good beers we would highly recommend it.

The staff were very friendly and very hard working. We ordered the pie, which was really tasty, we didn't have room left for a sweet. When we are next in the area, we will certainly return

We called in for a meal early one evening. I can understand why this place is so popular, the food is absolutely delicious! Before the waiter took our order, he placed a bottle of tap water on the table, which was such a good idea....More

Haven't been for 3 years....but based on our last experience we opted for this as a family gathering for my wife's birthday. In essence the punters that did not book were given priority over the two tables that did, one obviously was ours. 50 minutes...More
