Arrive early to beat queue

Not been here for a few years - still good service, food and great value. One of our party is Gluten free and they went out of their way to fry the fish in Gluten free batter. The fish and chips just delicious (not at all greasy) and the desserts were fantastic. We had Sticky Toffee Pudding and icecream, Choc... More

The battery was crispy and well seasoned. The chips?....wow. We... More

No notice was displayed and the first person to speak to us failed to inform us of the new system where bookings were taken and customers told they could go and get a drink elsewhere and staff would...
