Great food at great prices. Something for everyone on the varied menu and can highly recommend the pulled pork sandwich, it was delicious. Very busy in evenings so would recommend dining earlier when possible. Also lots of good deals on beer/cocktails etc.

A busy place, so we went for dinner later in the evening. Good food, a variety of ciders and real ales. Great value for money. Attentive personnel; when they notice you are waiting they go and check with the kitchen. Other restaurants may learn from them.
