We had several meals there, as this was the easiest place to access for dinner from our accommodation. The food was fairly basic and was cooked adequately. Basic pub food. The ladies were always friendly and they have plenty of cocktails on offer.

Food was scrumptious and meals were enormous! We couldnt finish our mains (after sharing a starter) but great on their own. All of the staff are very quick with drinks, regular checks and delivery of food. One of the girls working there noticed I had...More
