Great food, lovely atmosphere, good location with entertainment for kids on the arts centre. Sunday roast was excellent as was the halomi cheese main course that I had. Children's food was quite interesting, including small roast portion and an all day breakfast. Much better than regular kids options of nuggets and chips!

We went for an 'Early Bird' meal, before going in to the theatre next door. There is a very good menu, with plenty of gluten free options. 'Specials of the Day' are written up on the blackboard, mostly fish dishes. One can mix choices from either menu. Service is excellent and there is never any hurry to leave the table,... More

Food is always excellent, using as loads of local produce. Menus are wide, plenty of choice. Ambiance is generally quiet / nice so not a place for loud crowd.

We went here for Sunday lunch over the Christmas period and was expecting good things as I heard good things about it. It was a bit of a let down really. The "roast" potatoes were raw/hard in the middle, I was trying to get the attention of the staff but for about 10 minutes there was no sign of anyone... More
