Good atmosphere, not had any "cool" makeover. Food + beer grt. Staff v friendly. Can get busy but staff will soon find a table--at least Cliff will. Never rushed.

Had a fantastic Sunday dinner here last week, really nice tender chicken. Will definitely be returning. If you're really hungry there's a mixed meat option for £1 extra and it's well worth the money for how much more you get.

We arrived Just after 5pm on a Saturday Evening and the place was packed ! A friendly welcome from a nice guy behind the bar who explained the menu and system.....So we said we would probably try their offer of a bottle of wine and 3 tapas for under £20 !
