Booked this restaurant for a lunch to catch up with friends not seen for 6 years. The food was really good, home cooking especially the club sandwich and hunters chicken. The vegetarian pie was also very good and the portions were generous.

There is a seating area but only small in front of the bar - but the staff are superb I am sure they will accommodate if more seats are required. I'm sure you will enjoy as it's always fabulous.
