The welcome is so friendly and it is a lovely cosy place with a roaring open fire. Food is great and so reasonably priced. A good choice on the menu and also... More

Popped in for lunch. Waitress was really friendly and happy to check on allergies for my wife. Food was good with really nice baked potatoes. Could do with a bit of a refurb - really dark inside!

The tray baked cakes were huge and we got them straightaway but the coffee took ages and we had finished the nice cakes by the time it was eventually served. Only one girl serving and making coffee in the restaurant. The 4 coffees and 4... More

A strange place. Uninterested service and bland, reheated food. A bad choice given the other options available.
