As always the Borough delivers good food, good service in lovely surroundings. It helped that the sun was out and we were able to eat our food in the garden. But whether in or out the experience remains the same. Highly recommend.

The duck was cooked to perfection. My husband had the home made burger which was equally delicious. We will be returning in the future.

Parking outside is free on sundays and pay and display with one hour limit between 8am and 6pm. There are plenty of long stay car parks in the area. And free street parking 5 minuets walk away.
