Good menu and daily specials. Had our first meal of the year outside. Lots to watch from the outdoor area as you enjoy your food. The inside looked nice as well. Friendly staff and good quality food.

The starters were tasty but completely overpriced. My vegetarian main was described as ' a creamy mushroom pasta bake in a herby parmasan crust' what I received was stodgy half cooked pasta in, what... More
