We had a fish lunch at this restaurant served with jacket potatoes and fresh vegetables. Very reasonably priced. Very courteous and friendly service. The restaurant is immaculately clean. Would recommend.

An average restaurant serving fresh food. Service was kind and efficient. Cost acceptable. Nice fresh salad served with our steak. Straight forward basic home cooking standard. Good enough to go back yes but not fancy by any means.
