Dined here with my mother in Monday. She said the chicken Ceasar salad was the best she'd ever eaten. High praise indeed! My burger and chips was of a gourmet standard. Would recommend to anyone. I will return.

Took almost exactly 2 hours to serve us a 2 course meal. The main course turned up before the starter so we, of course, sent them away and then there was a long wait, with no apology, for the starters. When they did finally come...More
