Visited on a Friday, just after midday, we hadn't booked and it was already busy, but we were quickly accommodated. The food was quickly prepared and tasty. Of particular note was the Specials Board especially the Swordfish steak

Lovely and delicious meal but I couldn't manage a pudding too which was a shame! The staff were very helpful and friendly.

We're disappointed you couldn't quite fit a pudding in but glad you found the food to be delicious and the staff helpful and friendly. You'll have to visit again to see if you can make it to pudding.
