We stayed at the Inn last weekend whilst visiting friends and we ate dinner in the outside seating area with our friends and family. The food was lovely all round and the service good too with a special fuss made of the children in our group.

I came here with my colleagues for a lunch time celebration. It was a lovely experience, despite our large group there were problems seating us outdoors in the sun. Service was great, no problems with our orders. We all left very happy.
