Had a really good meal here on Sunday night. Had the stuffed mushrooms and lasagne and husband had the ribs and penne pasta, both really good meals and the service is excellent. Unfortunately didn't have room for a dessert but maybe next time.

Had dinner here last night. Lovely meal was enjoyed by all. The waiting staff were first class. Great value for money. Will return again soon. Lovely real fire in the bar , a bonus on a cold wet winters evening.
