Couldn't get in the Indian restaurant and while looking for an alternative we stumbled on the back door of here. It was nearly full but the helpful staff managed to find us a little table. The choice of food was quite good and didn't disappoint. Would recommend the venison.

It was quite when we arrived. They were very accommodating with our 4 kids and gluten free requirements. Busy by the time we left. I came here many years ago under a different name and management- this is much better.

Also friendly and cheerful. We enjoyed our meals , which were a good size and well cooked , with plenty of garnish and extras. We also managed to... More

Great pub/bar type food and beers for the weary traveller to chow down on. Lovely fresh food, well-presented and priced well. Good family lunch or dinner venue.
