Good food, good service by pleasant staff

A group of 5 of us were there on Christmas Eve and the place was fairly busy. We all chose different meals and everyone was very pleased with their choice. The herb crusted cod was cooked to perfection which is not always the case with fish. Lasagne was very tasty as was the fajitas. There was a... read more

It offers a good range of Gastropub-style food in a pleasant... More

Great choice of meals on the menu. Very friendly staff. Place was busy and had a nice atmosphere. Couldn't fault the food at all, all came quickly and tasted great. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a reasonably priced pub meal.

Was there with friends early on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived but it filled up quickly so I think the locals know where to come. A fair choice on the menu and the service was prompt and friendly. We all agreed we would use this place again if we were back in F. W. They... More
