We arrived and was promptly greeted by the waitress, advised of the menu and menu board and drink orders were taken. The service was second to none, staff were polite and friendly and the atmosphere within was very welcoming. The food was great I had... More

Loved it here. We could take the dog in which was fabulous. They had a high chair for the baby. The food was lovely and the owner (I think) was very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. A shame it was closed for the week we were there else I think we'd have eaten there every day!

We will... More

I enjoyed free wifi, a lovely ciabatta freshly made with my own choice of toppings and tea. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was so good I returned with family and friends for lunch the next day. All of the food was well cooked and presented.

It is a very friendly and welcoming restaurant with a very friendly owner and his family. The food was very good and plenty. The menu is large and with a very good selection of specials. They have local fish and local beer which was very delicious. The owner did give us a free sample of the local beer and it... More

Had an afternoon drink outside in the sun. Nice selection of bottled ales from local brewery. Chatted with John whilst he was clearing up. We went back the following day & had a meal, very nice. Welcoming service from the whole team. Will go back if in the area.

Popped in after walking past looking for somewhere to eat while on my family holidays. And the staff were very friendly, warm and inviting. Food was very good. The thing that lost them a star was the cheap bun used on the burger I had apart from that very yummy.
