Went for supper with a friend staff were very polite and friendly, served straight away and did not wait long at all till the food was brought out. Lovely food with home made chips at a great price. No complaints at all.

Called in on the off chance and offered a table without delay. Busy with bookings but have to say, we we’were served promptly and pleasantly. The food was fresh, hot and homely and non the worse for that. Straightforward and honest, what’s not to like?

Went for dinner with the family, the order we placed was incorrect again which is a shame. When the food was brought to the table there were long hairs in a number of the dishes. Decided not to complain as won’t be back anytime soon!
