“Fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Not long re-opened under new owners and with a refurb. Light and airy with pleasant deco. Well worth a visit for the Haddock and Chips alone. Proper crispy batter and REAL hand cut chips which is such a rarety these days. The menu is interesting and all the dishes we have tried have been spot on for quality and value. The wine list is good but slightly expensive but only if I'm looking to be picky. Well worth a visit, in fact as long as standards are maintained, a regular visit should be planned.

“Oh dear”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Was very disappointed when taken here for lunch last week, Just wanted a tasty snack and thought the bruchetta would be perfect alas I got a dry pale piece of toast with a tasteless chopped tomato on top, no olive oil, no basil ,no garlic - such an easy dish to do and get right! Barman/owner? could loosen up a bit and acknowledge customers with a cheey hello maybe? I am afraid if staff can't be bothered to just say hello or goodbye and thanks then I can't be bothered to spend my hard earned money in their establishment.

“Great freshly cooked”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

There was a choice of two different menus a bar menu and the restaurant menu. Between both there was a good choice. All the food was hot and tasty lovely. We all had starters and mains. Really too much food. Chips were Home made and really tasty. Service was quick but with enough time to enjoy our food. Cost was good 3 people 2 courses with drink £60

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Lovely interior and beautiful surroundings. I disagree with some of the previous reviews as there was mellow background music and was so busy that I would advise to book! A very good menu with a wide range of variety, serving excellent fresh food. Homely feel to the place and I would certainly recommend. Lovely little bar with great opportunity to sit in the quiet beer garden, where you can look over some lovely views on a summers evening.

“Yummy !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

My partner and I took my parents out for Sunday Lunch last weekend. The weather might have been miserable but it was the only thing. A wide variety of choice on the Sunday Lunch menu. The food was fantastic, fresh and tasty. Fast, happy staff eager to please and the prices were great too!!! Definately well worth a visit. Hope to go back soon.
