On this occasion there were lots of children and it felt a little like a nippers party, however this was only one occasion..open mind. Drinks prices were reasonable although no real ales. Definately worth a visit

Such a friendly, efficient establishment. The atmosphere is one of genuine welcome, the ambiance is warm and comfortable. We visited on a Sunday for lunch when a 3 course meal and coffee is on offer for a very reasonable rate. The owners remembered us by name and welcomed us as old friends, a very welcome change from some restaurants, even... More

Went a few weeks ago and the food was gorgeous. Staff very friendly, our waitress (can't remember her name, sorry might have been Gemma, or Jess) was very attentive and helpful throughout the night. Atmosphere was okay, room slightly cool. Would definitely recommended however! Thankyou
