The food here is fabulous - fresh and made to order - and the atmosphere very relaxing and friendly. They also welcome dogs and there is plenty of space. The Sunday lunches are really good value and very well cooked.

The food and staff were brilliant. The only negative is being sat near the men’s toilet. People often come and go and the smell was off-putting. Would definitely return if seated elsewhere.

Now one of the best places to eat in the area. We have been on several occasions and the food is freshly cooked.
