Excellent food in a warm and comfortable place. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The starter and the main course was excellent . The proportions were massive. The only negative was I was charged full price when it should have been the early bird but when copped the staff rectified it.

Dinner yesterday with friends was nice. Served well. Hot and tasty. Clean and I would say excellent bar food. A little expensive. Car park always full so get there early if you drive. Well worth a try. !!!!!!

Lovely setting, friendly staff, good atmosphere. A group of 4 of us visited, and we each had different burgers, all were delicious. Nice variety of sides available, and the food was reasonably priced. We will return!
