Affordable fresh food prepared to order. Range of American style Burgers (with Handcut chips and fresh Coleslaw) and traditional English dishes (Cottage Pie, Gammon with fresh Pineapple, homemade soups and Devonshire Clotted Cream Teas featuring Daily Baked Scones and homemade Jam). Newest offering 'Mrs Cobley's handmade Steak, Mushroom and Guinness Ale Pies', with Handcut chips and veg, 3.95 - and that's our most expensive dish!
