Great food and service. The restaurant is cosy, warm and classy. We will certainly be back. We wanted to try somewhere new, and we now have somewhere we will visit regularly. The value is great, well worth the money.

Visited here with my partner and tried a pint of 'Blitzen' which was a light bodied smooth ale brewed locally in Yorkshire, other local ales where available. Friendly staff and cosy atmosphere. Worth a sit down inbetween shopping.
