Car park almost full, 2pm, Sunday lunch time, dank December day, first visit: would have understood if they were rushed or too busy.

Meals used to be one of best in the area but recently the quality and portion size have diminished making it not good value for money. The starter of flat cap mushrooms used to be three very large mushrooms, now is reduced to three very small mushrooms, and at almost £6 a portion is a bit expensive. The Scrabster Haddock... More
