Nicely busy on arrival, but not too busy. We arrived 15 minutes early and were immediately shown to our table (choice of two actually). The waitress was polite and friendly. Our drinks (2 halves of lager) arrived promptly and we ordered about 10 minutes later....More

Lovely meal with excellent service. We were seated by the window initially but after saying we could feel a draught we were moved to a better table with no quibble. Full size portions too.

The only negative to this visit was When the door opened we could feel the draft. Food was really good, service was good and the January price of lunch for £5 is exceptional value. Would definitely recommend a visit
