We ended up having a few meals and drinks here. Sam behind the bar had a very good memory and had drinks ready when we came in. Meals were good and service good. Friday night entertainment was fantastic with the local band

New people have taken over the cooking and the meals are huge and fresh. We had half size meals and still found them more than enough. Even though it was very busy we didn't have long to wait for our meals. great friendly service
