Delicious freshly cooked food, great service in nice surroundings. Our first visit under the new management, the chicken, ham & leek pie was the best l've ever tasted. We'll definitly be back soon.

It was a nice building on a corner, well decorated around the front and the staff were very helpful. Our meals were nice and we enjoyed our quick stop. It was as expected, good value for money with... More
