A pleasant lunchtime meal

Although it doesn't have a huge menu, what it has is well done and enjoyable. Husband (notoriously hard to please) said his lasagne was 'very tasty' and ate every bit of it. I had the ham, poached egg and chips, and to my joy, the eggs were soft enough to dip my chips without any hint of 'snot... read more

The restaurant was nicely appointed and we were seated very quickly. We had no idea whether to order at the bar or if it was table service and even the waiting staff hadn't come to a consensus over this. Thus it took over 20 minutes just to place an order for drinks let alone food. The food was average but... More

The food was quick, it was hot but average at best, wanted a T-bone steak, but non available, ordered starter and a ribeye, baked Camembert starter wasnt available it was brie instead, staff didn't know until order went through. Steak was cooked but little finesse, nothing that a decent home cook couldn't rustle up. Chips were fresh cut and nice,... More

Have attended this restaurant fairly regularly over the last month (been there every week whilst our Son is at training!). A rating of 3 seems a bit tight, but it's not quite worthy of a 4! The service is fast and very pleasant / polite. Food is piping hot. The steaks are nicely tenderised. Chips are homemade and very nice.... More

What a miserable bunch!!. The prices on drinks are expensive everything was too much trouble for the staff with a severe lack of manners. Food was only average of local cafe quality which could have been passible if the staff had some customer service training!! Will not be returning thank you very much😬
