The staff were friendly and the food was nice enough. They do have a a children's adventure park outside so you are able to have a quiet drink while the children are entertained.

Very nice place to eat. Home cooked food at reasonable prices, nice conservatory to sit in whilst eating and a great play area for the kids to use on a nice day. Staff were friendly and attentive. I would recommend this place to anyone fancying a change from Butlins food.
