Visited for first time and loved it. Staff very friendly and good food and drink. The mixed grill is a good hearty feast.

Excellent young waitress Hayley was a star - busy Saturday night she wasn't intrusive but was very friendly and always available if we needed... More

Great staff and service especially our friendly waitress Hayley. Food was good-sized portions and plenty of choice, apart from the changes to the new menu next week. Food was good but I have had better steak. Patagonion prawns were great. Good selection of craft beers.

I visited here this afternoon with my wife and enjoyed a lovely meal. I have never been here before but will certainly come back. Our waitress Caroline was very friendly and helpful. Our food was delicious and I look forward to our next visit. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a quiet, friendly and welcoming environment.

I am not sure if the chef has changed in here but it didn't seem as good as the last few times - I have always rated this better than The Grange even though the same chain but now I'm not so sure.Fish and chips should never have left the kitchen, dark brown, greasy rock hard and inedible. the lady...
