Friendly service, with good food. A small menu but everything was covered, with the specials menu. Surprisingly busy for a Wednesday night. Staff were accommodating and attentive.

Sunday lunch. It was ok not as nice as we had hoped. Meat was a little bland, veg was lacking seasoning, cauliflower cheese was nice, gravy was granules. Really disappointed as not worth the money.

The food here was great! Staff were friendly and attentive. We had a lovely relaxing meal, didn't feel rushed at all. The view from the front is beautiful, especially at sunset when we were eating.

Was the first time of visiting since walking out last August. (See my previous review). New owners seem more friendly and one important note that they now provide a menu for "those of a smaller appetite". Basically a child's menu but hopefully not restricted to...More
