From just a coffee or cuppa tea , proper English breakfasts to well cooked dinners. Plus if its not on the menu they are only too pleased to adjust to your needs. Most " grub " is home... More

Second visit. Went mid-afternoon. Still quite busy as this is a popular place to eat for the locals. Good traditional menu and at a reasonable price.
