Been going in there since I was a child, when it was the original Five Star and have watched many of the staff grow up over something like 44 years.

Been going here for a few years now mostly at lunch but occasionally dinner. £7.20 for 3 courses is excellent. Wide and varied menu. Food is very good. Service is nice too. Was full today when we visited but you know the saying busy places tend to be good.:-D
