Went here for evening meal. Food quite good but not as described in the menu. Desserts very expensive for v small portion. Staff very friendly but it would have been nice to have been offered coffee at the end of the meal.

Good food with very generous portions and amazing chips. Quick and friendly service and the dog was welcome in the bar area. Plenty of room and a nice atmosphere. Good value for money.
