They did not disappoint. We were all made to feel very welcome. Children were well catered for, even child sized cutlery available.... More

Thought would try somewhere different for "old fashioned " food. That is what we got. Staff friendly enough but lost a star for not listening when I said please do not put a certain item of food on the plate I can not eat it..came out with the food with that item on..redeemed by taking it away and coming out...
