We ate here in December and we feel we should write about it, as we have not had chance. Really nice good, great atmosphere and friendly staff.

Use this place regularly. 2 for 1 meals are good value. Staff are pleasant. 'Specials' board displays the days meals. Comfortable restaurant, clean toilets.

I came in on a large party on the 17th December. Our food and service was fantastic, there was only one of our party that was unhappy and we couldn't see why! Would recommend to anyone!

Our 1st visit, ( not very busy) we waited nearly an hour for our food, my partner had nearly finished his meal before mine arrived & both meals were of a low standard. The landlady sits on a chair by the door like... More
