Great food , good portions and a very home made- just cooked feel. Friendly staff who actually looked happy to be there! A group of 8 of us booked and everything went smoothly, fair prices and the home made bread with oil and balsamic was delicious

Great home cooked food...the pie was lovely and the fillet of beef was excellent. The sticky toffee pudding was to die for! We will be going back again soon!
