I recently went here for dinner with my partner. He had the steak and ale pie and I had the lamb. Both were delicious. Recent basic not very cosy. Felt more of a cafe ambience. Would recommend for the food though.

You are quite correct, you should expect large parties at Christmas, after all that's how restaurants remain in business.

We arrived at 1pm and had a warm welcome from the staff. They were very accommodating and helpful throughout the meal. The meals were good, all freshly cooked and hot, which is something I look for when having a meal. There was a good selection...More
