Our food arrived promptly and was served by friendly staff and made to feel they cared that we were happy with everything. All courses were much... More

The local ales were excellently kept, with an equally excellent range of choices. We were presented menus in the bar, and given some time to... More

The food is always very good with an extensive menu to suit all tastes. It is always a pleasure to stay there even though I'm away from... More

We have visited this restaurant lots of times as it's quite local to us. It is definitely our favourite local. Food always hot, delicious and well presented. Staff lovely and friendly. Not the cheapest place, but well worth it.
