Went in for Brunch today - was busy, staff were friendly. Only MAJOR problem was that we had to wait an hour for our brunch!!!! The wait staff were apolgetic and done all they could. Unfortunately because of this I cant rate them high at all and wont be returning

This place is fantastic! Recently held my husband's 50th birthday there with family and friends. Staff were so welcoming and helpful, food was delicious and the overall feel of this place was just charming! We were offered a function room with private bar, jukebox and TV (for watching rugby of course!). Can not praise the staff highly enough! Thanks for... More

Two of our party ordered steak and both were cooked beautifully and were delicious. Another member of our party ordered blue cod and she said it was the nicest she had had for a long time. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely go back and recommend it. It was quite busy which is always a good... More

It is very popular and is always busy - a pretty good indication of what the place is like. The locals are friendly and the staff are welcoming and accommodating. Great place for a good,... More
