The menu is a little better than on my last visit and there were some specials on the board. The beer was good. Service was good.

We visited for a late lunch as a family of 5 with 2 vegetarians. The food choices were excellent and included a good range of vegetarian dishes to choose from. All of the food was piping hot and delicious, service was friendly and efficient. Prices were reasonable. We were all very impressed and would definitely return if we lived near... More

Very nice lunch here - just had a chicken and bacon baguette but it was done really nicely (barbecued I think) and had a really good flavour, so did the coleslaw. It was a touch on the expensive side (£9) but I can't fault the quality of the food and service was friendly as well.

Visited on Mother's Day for a set meal. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere of the restaurant was relaxed. The quality of the food was nice enough, the roast potatoes were too soggy for my liking. I would possibly return if I was in the area.
