Had a beautiful meal from the small but varied menu and stayed for a few drinks in the bar afterwards. Lovely warm fire crackling away on a cold night with great service and lovely wine list. A favourite.

Their classic Blue Cod dish will not disappoint! We often call in here for dinner and it's always perfect. Awesome atmosphere and Dave offers the best service (and makes great cocktails) A must do for out of towners wanting a quality meal with cosy surroundings.
