Come here every year with the kids and hubby. Great food and service - the owner remembers us every year when we’re up for our annual holiday, the buffet breakfast and lunch menu is of great value. Great family place.

As you'd expect from this type of establishment, the menu is basic but great value. Chicken Parma was tasty and not overcooked. Staff are friendly and a good night was had by all.
