My daughter booked a party of nine of us last night for my surprise birthday meal, and her choice of venue could not be bettered. The meal was excellent, atmosphere first class, and the staff were most attentive and patient. Highly recommended!

Hi, if you're coming for lunch then you'll need to park in the car park opposite the town hall, if it's in the evening then you are able to park anywhere on the square or side streets without penalties 😊
