Excellent lunch today with family. We opted for the 2 course lunch for £9.95 and it was excellent value. The Penne Pasta and Haddock Fillet were the standouts leaving both of us absolutely stuffed full. Real cosy atmosphere and attentive staff. This was our first visit, won't be the last.

Been here twice now, once for breakfast and once for lunch, slightly different experience on each occasion. First visit was for lunch after a recommendation from a friend.

Although the restaurant seems very dark and dismal, this is great value as the food is very well prepared and presented, and the service outstanding. We took a table nearest the window but that was where the flies decided to congregate, and we spent some time trying to swat a few. Would be excellent, with a brighter interior and something...

Food was beautiful slightly more expensive than I thought it would be but worth the money. I would say it wasn't very suited to children I took my 2 year old and 6 year old and felt I had to keep asking them to be quiet as there was not background noise and as we all know children can be... More

My husband and myself have visited the dining room frequently. For breakfast on a sunday morning to a lovely meal on a Saturday night. The food is always delicious and great presentation. It is good value for money and the staff are always friendly and helpful. In the summer they have a beer garden where you can sit and enjoy... More
