Very friendly and helpful staff. Made very welcome and accomodated us having a starter then a break before a main course without requiring us to move seats. Food quite good. You can order 3 part lagers or tap beers which we enjoyed

We enjoyed our food, the smoked chicken was moist and the smokiness was just right. The staff were attentive and we didn't have to wait too long for the food to arrive. I'm not a big fan of having my food served on tin trays,...More
