We visited on a cold March evening. Very warm and cosy inside. Great menu,especially vegetarian well catered for. Busy evening as quiz night. Advised food would take 40 minutes which was no problem and worth waiting for.

Sorry only found this email this morning so I hope you were successful in the booking. We visited early September, both Saturday & Sunday. We didn’t mind waiting for the meals as they were well worth it. Festive wishes Dawn
