Really enjoyed two evenings here. The staff were exceptionally friendly and other gusts made us feel like we were locals. Thank you!

Many thanks for your kind review. Glad you enjoyed all aspects of your meal. Our Kitchen team works really hard on all aspects of our menu. We make 'in house' rather than 'buy in' and this includes our ice creams.

We thought that the food and service were excellent. We had fish and chips together with two craft beers. It had a really great atmosphere.
