We tried three different meals between us and no one left disappointed. All staff were welcoming and well organised. Three empty plates and everyone voting to return asap speak for themselves. Bonus of being dog friendly as well.

My husband & I had a very enjoyable meal here as a break from driving around the local countryside. The staff were very welcoming and the meal was of a good standard, and we didn't have to wait too long for it. Would reccommend.
