I eat here regularly with two elderly family friends and this restaurant never disappoints. The food is good, always piping hot with great friendly service. Restaurant is cosy, friendly and lovely and clean. Value for money is excellent too as two courses are only £6.95 or £8.96. Definitely recommend a visit.
