lunch with great service

Recently went for lunch with my sisters, a treat as usually working. The young lady who served us was great, the food was very nice, we just all had a snacky lunch. Would recommend going there. The atmosphere is good, made better with the very attentive staff.

Very good selection of beers at very reasonable prices. Clean and open with small alcoves for those intimate little chats. Large space outside on the green if you wish to drink alfresco

We booked the upstairs function room for a family gathering of 35 and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent as was the service. The main course was served piping hot for everyone and the choice of properly cooked vegetables I.e. not overlooked was wonderful. Out of all the guests there were no complaints ( a record for our...

Pleasant staff , but very average food, roast potatoes were the frozen type so tasteless & slightly over cooked. Lemon Meringe was also frozen. So would not really call thus a Bistro...
