Been here twice whilst on holiday. The food is lovely, there are daily specials and a good menu. The prices are good for the quality of the food. Will be visiting again.

Water and juice were provided in jugs also. The waiting staff were all very pleasant. I had the steak but I have to say the food was pretty... More

The Brie starters were very nice. I thought the sauce was a little sweet but my husband enjoyed it. I had the sea bass special with champ. This was... More

Passed this place on the way to Newcastle on Easter Monday. Having spent two hours of tailbacks we decided to give up and head back home. On the way back we decided to stop for a late lunch. Place was very busy but we were greeted immediately on arrival by a very friendly waiter and was asked to take a... More
