Five of us had the Sunday Roast, served by attentive staff in a thoroughly clean, attractive surroundings.

We have eaten several times now and the food is fantastic. It has been so consistent. The friendly atmosphere also makes it a great evening out. We have been so impressed we have booked our christmas lunch there.
