We stopped here to have a drink after a very wet walk. On seeing the food we ended up having a late lunch of burgers and chips. The lunch menu is very reasonable and we really enjoyed the burgers especially as they weren't in brioche...More

Just had the most fantastic meal here! Food was top quality, service wonderful. We didn’t expect such high quality for such reasonable price. Will eat here again and would recommend to everyone! Portion size was just right, choice was plentiful.

Had not booked but were accommodated quite nicely. Old fashioned decor added to the charm and the polite helpful waiting staff were welcoming. Food was good and even though the restaurant was busy we were not kept waiting. A delicious meal. Thank you.

Went with friends Saturday for dinner. Service was very slow. Food disappointing. Pate looked off. Small portion looked like an eyebrow and grey. Staff wouldn’t change it. We paid up and left before chancing the main course. Customers around us were moaning about waiting and...More
