We popped by last weekend for some lunch, unfortunately it was closed due to a wedding but the owner served us drinks and told us to make ourselves at home for as long as we wanted. Makes such a nice change to be welcomed somewhere....More

This is a lovely place, the food (Sunday lunch), was so good. The beef had so much taste & the three course is such a bargain. Good & not too pricey wine. Try this place you won’t be disappointed.
