We've been here regularly, even when they are busy the staff are friendly and will try to fit you in. The food is probably the best in the town and portions make sure you'll not need to snack on the way home.

Enjoyed our starter and two of our three main courses were very tasty. Service was very good. Decor could maybe do with a lift and toilets need a bit of work. Food is very good.
