From the outside it looked like a pub that served food, how wrong my first impressions were. On entering the decor was lovely, there is a small bar area on the right with tables and seating, we were given a very friendly greeting by the bar man. We ordered drinks and took a seat in the bar whilst we perused the menu, we were told we could eat wherever we liked, we opted for the restaurant area, a lovely lady called Holly took our order and stayed she would show us through once our starters were ready. The restaurant was at the rear of the building, a lovely area, nice ambience, white table cloths etc. The food did not disappoint us either, one of the best meals I've had and good value for money. I had hummus to start, followed by pan fried chicken (fabulous), would've been rude not to try dessert, opted for the Bailey's creme brulee (divine). Can't wait to go back.

Attended yesterday evening....We had prawn cocktail and home made houmus followed by chicken in a cream sauce. We finished with a crème brulee...The meal was very good...The service was professionally managed by "Holly"....
Its not an extensive menu but a strong one for tourists.....Restaurant very Hemmingway ...I liked it....Toilets were upstairs and were clean.....It is also a dog friendly establishment....Well worth a visit.

Stopped by for a nightcap in the bar which was very quiet. There was an overpowering smell of cooked fish which would was unpleasant after a meal elsewhere. It felt as though it was mainly for residents so we left after one quick drink. Loos upstairs.

Visited here on two separate occasions. Reminded me of an old Gentleman's club on entering. Small bar area but received a warm welcome. The food menu looked quite nice & prices were reasonable but unfortunately we'd already eaten.
Would definitely return when visiting the area again.

We had the roast rib of beef Sunday lunch and couldn't fault either quality or quantity. The beef was both tender and tasty. The Yorkshire puddings both plentiful and some of the best we have tasted in a restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful but not too intrusive. We would recommend this to anyone.
