IT is a very nice place to have a meal especially now they have extended the dining room. We... More

We visited on a Tuesday lunchtime; having booked a table for four. We were warmly welcomed and well looked after by the manageress. We decided to choose something different, each, from the menu. I'd highly recommend the chicken leek and bacon pie which was very tasty. My husband had the Cumberland sausage, whilst our son had the battered cod and... More
