We had a steak dinner here about six weeks ago after an afternoon shopping. There was very little atmosphere but in fairness that was probably due to the time, as we ate around 5.30. There were a few people in the bar area but no-one...More

We have been here a couple of times for lunch and always enjoyed. Food plentiful and staff were really friendly. There was a live band on who were local and very good. Will be back.
