Had a really good evening meal. Food was excellent fresh & tasty. So came back with friends for a birthday breakfast as the veggie selection looks quite good. We were not disappointed, all meals were well received & very good coffee too.

Lovely evening only spoilt by a self-opinionated customer giving his views on Brexit most of which were rubbish. However the duck was great, the vegetarian option tasty, the house red very drinkable and the service friendly and efficient. Thanks
