Had two meals here after a fellow hotel guest recommendation and a quick check on Trip advisor. Good old down to earth cuisine with a hearty, plate filling helping.

We had a Sunday lunch here on the 6th November it was beautiful. You get loads of meat and veg.we had been once before so hoped it was still there. Definitely worth a visit if you are wanting a Sunday lunch. Sometimes you have to book as it can get very busy

Walked to this little restaurant after seeing the reviews but was unfortunately full, booked up the restaurant for a few days later & was not disappointed, Lovely food & great drinks at a very reasonable price, place was packed as well which normally is a great indication, deserves its high tripadvisor rating
