We were sat in the sun in the garden (mid October) and had a drink and the next day we were back for lunch. Great home cooked food, just a pity we weren't around longer to taste a few more meals. The beers etc were kept well.

Popped in for some lunch and got the pleasant surprise of an excellent Carvery Lunch, couldn't fault the food or service, especially at only £5.95 per head. Staff were great, very friendly, food a wonderful surprise and excellent! Wish they had a bar in Edinburgh

Just a stones throw from our accommodation, this place had very friendly staff and the food was good. The seating area at the front was a little sun trap and we visited this place a couple of time a day. They play excellent live music in the evenings and we found this a friendly place to relax. A little bit... More
