Had a great lunch here, something for everyone and all at very reasonable prices. Very friendly and helpful staff and the food arrived really quickly. Lovely fluffy jacket potatoes and the all day breakfast were the favourites. A great reliable option in Fordingbridge.

If you want a fried breakfast in Fordingbridge then guess this is the best place to go. Of course, if you are used to a £3.59 Wetherspoons then this will feel very expensive. It is good, though, so nothing much to come complain about. The...More

Sunday lunchtime, people enjoying a great friendly atmosphere with good value home cooked food. Their cheese scones are to die for. Definitely worth a second visit.
