An early evening meal was thoroughly enjoyable with unexpected half price house wine. A full menu and a lovely serving lady. My only regret was spotting the lamb cutlets as I left and being too full to start again.

Good food and a nice young lady serving us. Only criticism is that the food took a while to arrive but was worth waiting for.

We had a good meal with friendly service last week. We visit this place a lot. Often for a quick drink and some chips on a Sunday. The food is tasty and interesting, with a small but well designed menu.

Since my last visit I had been advised that there was a new landlord, new staff, a new menu and a new attitude. All of these proved to be correct. It's back on the list.

We love this place. The food is excellent, top notch, and I would highly recommend the Sunday roast. They cater for children with a wholesome menu and there’s room in the garden to have a run about.
