The restaurant is busy because it's good. Dinner was exceptional and the breakfast was very nice. The pub had a lot of locals, that tells you it's good. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. Excellent staff that were friendly and attentive.

Great food. Friendly staff even though it was quite busy when we went. Great atmosphere. And we made use of the courtesy transport they have. Highly recommended. Thanks for a great night.

Just finished a three course meal here tonight. The ‘butchers block’ sharing starter is a must have! Really nice. Friendly staff and great atmosphere.

Called in for an evening bar meal and was very disappointed. Overcooked fish and very few chips and peas spread over a large plate.......not good for £9. Take a bit more pride in presentation.More
