Busy and friendly establishment. Claire and her team work very hard at delivering good quality food in a friendly welcoming environment. Saturday night entertainment particularly good and helped to make our weekend very special. Thoroughly recommend.

Expensive but food really good and probably worth the cost as a nice treat. The chips were very crisp and dry, plenty for two of us. I had a great Eton mess as a sweet.

We ate there 2 nights running as the food was so good. The service was very prompt and we sat near the lovely fire. It had a very relaxed, friendly feel about it. I went for the fish option both nights and it was delicious.

This is a great place for lunch or dinner. Food is consistently good, very friendly and inviting venue. A reasonable selection of gluten free meals. Every time we have visited we have found the staff very friendly, informative and helpful. Well worth a visit.
