Had a family lunch here. Lots of choice on the menu and reasonable prices. Nice to see a restaurant not skimp on vegetables with your meal and the portion sizes were large and left no room for desserts. Would recommend.

The food here is very good, basic pub food, but the Liver & Bacon and there ham eggs and chips are top drawer. The only drawback to this place it can be cold in the winter, especially in the restaurant.
