Had a great meal here today with partner and my parents. Food was delicious, big portions and extremely good value for money. Waitress was very friendly and good social distancing measures were in place. We will return at some point in the future for sure.

Yes we do and only two minutes from the airport, come and join us!!!
I cant understand the complaints on here about the dining room,, ive drank here for a number of years now old management and new, the old, well I must agree the food was never really inviting I once asked for a pork fillet steak and it came (eventually aafter my chasing it up) and one end was curled up like a fish tail,, we didn't eat there again however with the new management in place we have eaten here twice and were very pleased with the service the food quality and the staff especially Christine who always has a word and a smile for you,,,, this week on the 15th we took her two daughters, three fussy ladies,, I know,, for a pre Christmas lunch, our table was laid out in a lovely festive manner complete with a cracker each, we soup,, main course and a desert,, and when I asked the girls as one they all said oh yes definitely we would like to come again,, so please don't right this off try it again im sure you will enjoy it
