Really nice little place for food. I got lasagne which was delish and my husband got the lamb ragu. Super tasty! The desserts were nice but nothing fabulous... Customer service was excellent - really friendly and accommodating! Will be back soon for sure!

This was known to me as a public house years ago and what a change! There is still the opportunity to have a drink but most people seemed to be there for a meal. We had been told about the quality and were not disappointed....More

Response from Dinerlady | Reviewed this property |
It’s a small old pub - main entrance is via steps . Also there are steps down to toilets - so I don’t think it’s a suitable venue for you. However I suggest you Ross ring as he is always very helpful
