amazing friendly service as the bar staff could not have done more for our party. The foods is all cooked to order ok it not fast food but if you want that go to a burger bar but it was well worth the wait. The menu has some thing to cover a wide range of people's tastes.

I went with my parents and daughter for a meal out. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The food was great and served hot. I can recommend the Bakewell tart! Service was very good. I will definitely be coming back. Thank you for a lovely evening.
