Very Good

Excellent service and good quality food from a menu offering a pretty good choice. Really nice surroundings and atmosphere and plenty of time to enjoy the meal and relax. This is the second time I have had lunch here and both occasions have been enjoyable. Will be back again.

Went for father in laws birthday. Great choice of meals, friendly,knowledgeable staff and good choice of drinks. Food was quality, minor point was minimal accompaniment with starter, I didn't think that 2 pieces of salad was enough. However, main was excellent and pudding was excellent,well worth a return visit.!

Food, service and facilities are perfect! Child friendly, not sure if they have a bouncy castle on every Sunday but lovely treat for kids.
