I like the ambience, pleasant staff, service and have actually visited this restaurant 3 times in the past month. They have a reasonably priced and varied menu.

A lovely little find if you like a cheap lunch. Good standard, nice range and pleasant efficient staff. Sausage & mask with onion chutney gravy, what's not to like at £4.99, a real steal. Not cordon bleue but that's not always wanted.. and they take Tesco vouchers!

Been here several times as the food is good and staff helpful and friendly. Also accommodates disabled person. Only downside on this visit was our table was right in front of the fire and was very smoky
