Great choice of gluten free dishes, well marked on menu. Had a beautifully cooked beer battered huge piece of cod with chips and mushy peas followed with a pear bake well and custard. Love calmly sourced lamb and uses local suppliers like Crawshaws butchers. Deserves support from people nearby as well as visitors to area
