Visited here for lunch on Easter bank holiday whilst on a family break Friendly staff, good food. We had curry, chilli con carne, burger, soup and haddock goujons - all home made and a drink each for around £50 - all good and great value

This is a great place for a meal or a drink. We visit regularly. Last week I popped in for lunch and had some lovely soup and a terrific tasty burger. Food is always good. The staff are always professional, welcoming and lots of fun.

Came here with my running club after our annual 10k Winter Handicap. I ordered a Vegetarian Cottage Pie which was delicious and something I would recommend. Service was very friendly and made us feel welcome, all 25 of us. Hot Chocolate was nice too. Highly recommended.
