Late afternoon visit on the way home, just for a hot drink and maybe a piece of cake. Very pleasant staff, extensive menu of homemade food, deserving of a longer, hungrier visit. Unpretentious and good value 👍

First visit ( on recommendation of a friend) the food was homemade and delicious. Atmosphere warm and inviting and the staff really friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be returning in the future to the Mallard.
