Fantastic food Melt in your mouth meat in the steak pie. Chicken and leek pie amazing. Cheese and broccoli bake excellent. Great service and atmosphere. The chips are to die for. Highly recommend anyone to try the food.

Although the food and the service was nice. I do feel like the oil used to cook our chips could do with changing. It's a shame as I was really looking forward to homemade chips. The rest of our food was lovely. Oh well maybe...More
