I don't usually write reviews but I think that this place deserves a good review from me. For such a simple dish the ham egg and chips I had here was simply perfect and the chips possibly the best I have ever tasted and then washed down with some very refreshing Cornish lager (Korev) Prices are very good so overall...

We held it in the function room. They allowed us to decorate it as we pleased. The meal was lovely and all of our... More

The exceptional service I received was the first thing I should note about this place. The young lady who served me was v. friendly and personable, made our experience eating out feel very relaxed and like we were welcome.
