A lovely welcome as we called in here, also welcomed dogs in the restaurant which was great. Good choice on the menu, very reasonably priced, and very tasty. Attentive staff, couldn’t fault anything! Definitely worth a visit.

The food was reasonable in flavour and value. The menu was fairly simple but offered enough variety. The service was a little slow at times and one of the staff seemed to wanted to be elsewhere.

Had a burger. Not bad but nothing to write home about. No one greets customers as they enter. Had to ask if they were serving. Weird vibe about the place.

Group stopped for a quick coffee break, decent bathroom, service was efficient. Since we did not order food, could not really comment on that.
