After a long drive I was happy to stay local for dinner. The fish, gurnard, was delicious served with salad and chips. I sat outside to enjoy the weather - plenty of seating both inside and outside. Service was good, as was the food but...More

Decided to come here as the pizzaria was closed, The menu was confusing, as "small share" and "large share" doesn't really mean anything. We ordered the lamb burgers off the "large share" menu (which are not exactly sharable) They came out as just that, a...More

The only downside to our stay at the attached hotel was this restaurant. Its menu wasn't very varied, and had a strange set up of 'small share plates' and 'large share plates' - I'm not sure they understand what sharing means because they were not...More

Disappointing meal - dry chicken, lamb ribs were quite nice. Desserts very average. Wouldn't be in a hurry to return. Friendly staff.

Been here a few time over the years and was surprised to find the neither "Fish & Chips" or a basic "Beef Burger" this time. The kids menu was less than average. The service was good and staff much better than the meals

We waited an hour for our food, only for an order to come out wrong. There were tables that arrived after us being served first. The waitstaff were not apologetic about this, and we were not warned of the wait upon entering.
