Went today for the 3 course early bird menu. Had choice if potato skins or minestrone soup for starters, followed by any pasta or pizza dish and finished with with either coffee or ice cream. Fantastic value, will be going back

What a great place: comfortable rooms; superb restaurant and most of all very friendly, efficient and helpful staff. I couldn't ask for more and all at a very fair price. Give it a try.
