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.

Been here several times. Staff always very friendly and helpful. Excellent Sunday Lunches - best to book during the week. Occasional live music on Fridays when generous fish supper available. Limited menu range but always worth a visit and food all well prepared and served. Good value.

Good food, friendly staff, excellent service. One of the best Sunday lunches around. Good choice of vegetables and the crackling is to die for!
