Food was unreal the first night we arrived, so good that we went back every night for dinner our entire trip. Staff are great, atmosphere is warm and homely. 10/10 experience.

I have never seen kids reject chicken nuggets or chips when they are starving. My salad was covered in so much olive oil it was disguising. My husband soups was described as “a waste of calories”. Obviously understaffed (signs everywhere). Should have been our sign....More

We had the lemon sole, lamb rump and chicken filo pie and all were fantastic. The choice of Speight's ale was also very good. The atmosphere was a little subdued, would've been good to have some live music on maybe.
