We've spent summer days outside, winter evenings cosied up inside, even a sunny winter day in January a friend and I braved it and asked to eat... More

Staff friendly and helpful. Roast beef cooked to perfection but i can make better Yorkshire Puddings. Veg ok nothing special. Hubby had The Works breakfast not all that amazing beans looked like they had been in a pot all weekend, also no tomatoes as he is allergic yep came with tomatoes. Pretty average not outstanding.

We returned to this bar/restaurant because we had enjoyed our previous visit about a year ago. We weren't disappointed! The ambience is warm and friendly, a place that seems to cater both for locals and visitors with ease. The staff were friendly and efficient, we enjoyed an excellent bottle of Viognier and a decent glass of Pinotage with olives and... More

The dish of the day on the 2nd occasion was sole which had a strong smell and was overcooked , with samphire which had a taste of detergent. Nice building but our last visit for... More

Last minute decision to try here whilst visiting my daughter at Uni. In a popular student area and we were really surprised by the menu choices. Good selection for all diets, vegetarian, gluten free . The food was home cooked and very tasty , at a reasonable price too. The cheesecake dessert was enough for two. Will definitely go back...
