Super atmosphere and really friendly staff. The food was excellent and plentiful and really tasty. Birthday was mentioned when booking and some nice touches like banner and table decorations appeared. We will return.

We visited this cosy eatery for a quick lunchtime treat and were not disappointed. Staff are friendly and food is served promptly, portion sizes are good too. In future I will forget about the busy cafes and head to the top of the High Street for a culinary treat.

We dropped in here for lunch on our way to our hotel for a New Years Eve. It's a small and cosy old wood beamed pub with masses of character.
