Four of us plus one dog called in at random for dinner and were made welcome. The food was plentiful, of good quality and good value. We will call in again.

Nice and clean hotel, staff smartly dressed and helpful. Food was nothing special but good size portions. Prices tad expensive possibly reason for so few covers. Comment would be if all menue was £1 cheaper this would be a good value establishment. Nothing bad but not startling give it a try and then decide.

Excellent food and service in a tragic little hamlet. Mixed grill is enough for four but a hearty appetite polished it off. Three course Sunday meal is a steal.

Really good fun even if a bit more "amateur" than expected. The organisers did well to keep a small venue atmosphere with the jokers right in the thick of the audience. Well done. A tenner well spent.
