We offer everything from A la Carte, Lunch, Bar snacks, Sunday Roast, Home Made Desserts, to private functions, buffets, wedding receptions, all tailored to your specification. We accept Gourmet society cards, and you can follow us on face book. Our Quiz night is the first Thursday of every month & our acoustic open Mic/busker evening is the last Friday of every month.

Lovely inside and friendly staff. Sat in the restaurant area which is light and airy. Sunday lunch was huge and all the vegetables were fresh. The meat was thick cut and my beef was melt in the mouth. I would recommend it.
