Very warm welcome from the barman. Lovely food (cooked very well and piping hot) . It was a one off chance visit and very well worth it. We would definitely visit again if we were in this area. All the staff were friendly.

The staff were very friendly from the moment we entered this restaurant. I think my waitress was called Chloe She was fantastic. She was very helpful and gave me and my family great service. The food was great. I would highly recommend this pub/restaurant.

It seems that some restaurants are getting it just right and this restaurant is no exception. The staff were attentive and friendly from the moment we entered. I can't remember the waitresses name (old age on my part!) but she was blonde. She was fantastic. Prompt, helpful, nothing was too much trouble and the lovely food was the added bonus.

The bar staff were polite enough and the... More
