Visited on a Saturday, it was busy but we managed to get a table. They are a bit cramped together downstairs, seems a bit more room upstairs. Definitely no room for buggies or wheel chairs and not friendly for them either with no easy access...More

Normally have a lovely sandwich here, but who grated cheese, made it so hard to eat, spilling everywhere. Sliced cheese please. Also the description extra mature didn’t seem correct, more like mature.
