Went in for an early meal prior to cinema visit at 1800hrs. Made to feel very welcome, as it was 1630hrs offered the choice of lunch time and evening menu, which gave us a really good selection. Really pleasant atmosphere, very clean, great service with smashing food at a very reasonable price. Will definitely be going again.

Little Plates or main courses but always new tastes to try. Talented chef Neil changes the varied menu regularly. Good quality food at good prices.
