A nice place to go for a quiet drink though there is usually a group on inside if you wish to go. There are heaters in the open air bar if it turns chilly.

The food tasted fine but the portion size seemed a bit small for the price. When we have been here for entertainment, there is a great atmosphere and we've had a great time. I give... More

The Sunday carvery was fairly average, good selection of meat however the veg could have been better. Watch out for the expensive drinks! Cost me £6 for 2 pints of coke!
