Upon entering, it was empty (which is something that always put me off, but I'm so glad it didn't). The waitress (who I believe to be the manager) kindly made a table... read more

Would recommend this restaurant for friendly service, pleasant surroundings and really good value lunches. Proper home made chips too! This has to be a bonus (can't stand oven chips which seem to be the standard option these days)! The sticky toffee pudding is delicious too.
