Good quality, interesting food, well cooked and nicely presented. Friendly (as opposed to over-familiar or distant), effective staff; nice decor and atmosphere - all at reasonable prices. What's not to like? Worth a trip from Durham

I have eaten here many times and not had a bad meal yet :) Had a lovely Beef dinner on Sunday followed by chocolate brownie and Ice cream, both were delicious. Luke looked after us and the service was second to none! Enjoy.
