Excellent Meal, the hake was really moist and lots of it. Sticky toffee pudding amazing and streets ahead of the traditional Cartmel sticky toffee pudding. Lovely staff who made us very welcome. Would not hesitate to come back.

Excellent food and great service, despite us trying unsuccessfully to burn the place down ( napkin set on fire and poor attempt to put it out!). Well worth a visit!
