This restaurant is real good serving quality food at very reasonable prices, if your looking for English cuisine this is recommended, the service is excellent and all very light on the pocket. Book in advance to be sure of a table as it gets very busy during peak times.

Brought more friends here for the first time. Another resounding success. Only here for a week this time but had to bring our friends back a second time before going home. Lovely food. Unbelievably cheap for what you get.

Had 2 meals of cod and chips and third meal lamb shank. All 3 mains delicious, served by lovely young lady. Prices reasonable. It's closed... More

This restaurant is well worth a visit or two. The food is great and plentiful and I mean plentiful. I would reccommend no lunchtime snacks if you are dining here in the evening. The staff are so nice and very helpful. Well worth a visit.

We arrived early as didn't have a reservation, thankfully they fit us saying they'd need table in 1.5hrs...plenty of time! And boy were we glad, the food was excellent, wholesome, fresh and plenty of it. I'm vegetarian so chef prepared the most amazing mushroom dish, offered two choices if I didn't want mushrooms. Service was excellent, dessert was yum, coffee... More

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. Served efficiently and in a friendly manner by the adorable young Lauren. All this with pocket friendly prices, who can go wrong?!. Booking is understandably recommended. Thank you all at the...
