We came here one day for something to eat before heading to the Amazing Ice cream farm. The food was such a surprise, everything was presented well and was great value for money.

Food good, bar staff very welcoming. if you are a vegetarian or wanting a sandwich / JP / quick snack. Don't stop here. Menu VERY limited with no veggie options. Shame as used to come here years ago and the menu / atmosphere brilliant. Hardly any customers and certainly not as good as it was. Would not go again unless... More

I gather the management changed recently, and there was clearly a transition period where things were not as they should be. However our Sunday lunch this week was better than ever in there and the staff were equally on par. Well done we will be back keep up the good work.

The new owners have managed to destroy everything that has been built up over the years in just a few weeks. The bar staff are more interested in checking... More
