Visited here recently and was delighted with the overall atmosphere and decor of the place. The restaurant was extremely busy and I was seated and served promptly by one of the very efficient members of staff. The food was delicious and obviously home made. Will definately recommend this establishment to my friends. Very well done.

Visited here one afternoon with my husband and have to say the food was excellent, good home cooking, just what you need on miserable rainy day, and the portion sizes were more that enough, the service was excellent and the staff very friendly, also very welcoming to children which is a refreshing change, would definitely recommend here, well done everyone.
