Desserts were to die for, especially the bread and butter pudding... More

On the occasion of one of our daughter's graduation, we went to McCleary's and a most enjoyable meal in pleasant and clean surroundings. The serving staff were excellent and the pace of the meal was spot on. The toilet facilities are excellent and all in all we would have no hesitation in recommending McCleary's for that special occasion or for... More
