Lovely menu. We were spoilt for choice! I had salted chilli chicken and rice. It was delicious. He had pie of the day and said it was nice. The staff were very friendly. Wasn't very busy (3pm). Small but I believe there is another room upstairs. Nicely decorated. We would definitely go again.

The tables were all set for us in advance with serviettes, balloons, banners, flowers and lights. The food matched the occasion with every meal right and the quality superb. Prices were fair and everybody was happy. We have booked our... More

Very busy but staff very attentive and helpful offering to bring pushchair upstairs as no tables were free downstairs- however a lady offered to swap which was excellent. We both ended up ordering the beef brisket which was fantastic - and the extra chips we ordered were not necessary as... More
