We have been coming here for a while now. The staff always make a fuss over our children and make us feel very welcome. The food is delicious. Deep flavours and very fresh. Our favourite place to eat out by far.

Eaten here 3 times now with a group of 12 (sometimes exuberant) golfers. Always very accommodating and friendly with great banter. Food is excellent and service first class. Very good value.
