We visited today from North Cornwall for our 41st wedding anniversary. We had the seasonal nut roast which was just perfect, the service was excellent as usual and we had mince pies to takeaway. The food is ALWAYS reliable and lots of gluten free options...More

The food here is stunning, a real hidden gem! We were meeting family and it hit the spot. The lunchtime ambience was good with most tables filled. Great service and no pressure to stop our family chat. Will go back in an instant!
