Four of us had lunch here for the first time on a cold Friday in November. There was a lovely roaring open fire in the main room and there were just a few other diners. We hadn't made a booking and there were plenty of tables available. The website makes the restaurant look shabby but it certainly isn't in real life. The atmosphere is cosy.
We received quick and friendly service and we ordered from the special lunch menu of two courses for £9.95. Everything was beautifully presented, from the crisp white linen napkins to the way our beer battered fish and chips came arranged in a boat of grease proof paper, accompanied by a small dish of minted peas and homemade tartare sauce. The desserts were good portions and home made too.
We will definitely return here for food when we visit our relatives. It is a shame that there were not more people using the restaurant. Use it or lose it folks!
