We called in for a snack whilst touring the area and were pleasantly surprised. We had a toastie, tuna sandwich and some cheesy chips with tea all round. The food was good value and very tasty without being too expensive or pretentious. Judging by how busy it was I guess the meals were good too.

I am soooo full writing this review! What a lunch! For a small venue the menu was extensive, and a specials board with over a dozen additional items on it! Steak cooked blue was spot on, cooked medium was cooked perfectly too. The cottage pie from the specials board was full of flavour! The jacket potato options were huge! Only... More

The opening times/closing times seem to be eratic and I have gone to eat there only to find it closed. Food good and atmosphere good. Seats are rather heavy and hard. Toilets are outside and up an alley....??
