Great food

Food is amazing, and always up to scratch. Portions are huge and great value. Lasagne is a firm favourite of mine topped off with the ginger sponge pudding!! Drinks however are quite pricey!

Nicest Sunday lunch in the area. Only downside being collectively the most abrupt /ignorant barstaff I've ever came across
