Last came here in 2014 pre makeover, very impressive especially the stonework below the bar. We both had steak, good honest food and very well kept lager.

I booked this restaurant for a Saturday lunchtime, and I must admit, I was somewhat concerned after reading some of the reviews However, I needed to have no worries, from the warm welcome as soon as I walked in the door, excellent quality of food at reasonable prices, and warm, friendly service, it was one of the most pleasant lunches...

Awesome restaurant clean, tidy and extremely friendly staff!! We can Greek starters and mains and it was delicious 😋.If I was to pick on anything the Greek salad needed a vinaigrette and stones out of Olives but that's being really picking! Hopefully we can go again soonx
