Food and hospitality are both great. They even provided a bowl of dinner for our dog too at no extra charge. We returned the following week we enjoyed the Sunday lunch so much.

Very reasonably priced, especially for the quality of the food. I think mains were around £8-£10ish and were good sized portions. Desserts around £5ish I think! Beautiful food!
