Really enjoyed our stay here both times. The food is excellent, the star steak pies are a real treat. The best thing about this place is truly the staff, Shannon was exceptionally helpful last time we were there. Will definitely stay again! Thanks!!

We're local, and having read the reviews on here had planned to visit for some time. What a disappointment:-( When we arrived we walked into an uncomfortably cold dining area. The young guy at the bar showed us to our table and was, to be fair, friendly and pleasant throughout our visit. The atmosphere was really quite uncomfortable. The total... More
