This seems to be a little hidden gem, although it is british cooking, all the same it is excellent prices, portions, food & service. Hope the present owners continue to stay.

After more than 60€ of bill eating and drinking with a dozen of friends the owner refused us to charge our tablet for 5 min... Not one smile or not any friendly signs.... This establishment is not worth it at all. We came for a week and never had any sign of good willing... Run away from it !

Always have had a great time here,food excellent especially the Sunday lunch, staff very friendly and helpful The previous complaints make me think that they either went to a different restaurant or they have an ulterior motive.
