Thankfully the portions were... More

We were on our way back home from a day down in Swanage and thought we'd stop in for a drink along the way. As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a curt 'we are closing at 5pm' (this was New Year's Day) by the woman behind the bar. No 'hello' first or anything. It was only... More

Visited here today and was very impressed. The starters were incredible, both really good portions and very tasty, would recommend the fish cakes and pork fritters to start. Would visit again, great value for the money too!

We regularly go here for lunch or dinner and as usual we were not disappointed. There is always a great choice of meals available. All staff are accomodating and friendly and the restaurant has a great atmosphere to it.

Visited on a very wet Saturday lunchtime in November. We had booked a table for 11 of us. Very warm greeting from everyone. Shown to table and all service extremely good. We ordered a variety of starters which were delicious from the deep fried Brie wedges to the Arbroath Smokie Fishcakes. House curry was Chicken Balti with rice and nan... More
