Another fabulous meal at Memories. We’ve been wanting to return but keep forgetting to book and they’re so busy advance booking is essential!! A warm welcome and perfectly cooked food we were looked after throughout our visit in every single way.

Easiest place to park is in Rowley Road which is opposite the restaurant. Access is gained via St Marychurch Road along by the golf course.
