We had a brilliant Sunday roast here, everything felt really fresh. They allow dogs in which is always a plus! Great for dog walking around the area too.

We had a lovely Easter Sunday lunch here for the whole family (21 plus 5 under 5s) and it was superb! All the food was served together, hot and delicious. Extra vegetables were provided on request. Excellent, friendly service. We can't recommend highly enough.
