After having some fantastic evenings here, I’m sad to say it’s getting tired. We went on a Christmas evening which offered a festive menu. Turkey meal was good, but if you order lamb rump, be prepared to be hungry - there was next to nothing...More

We have been to this restaurant a few times and each time we have had a great experience. The food is excellent and the entertainment outstanding. Family run business and they bend over backwards to make sure that you enjoy yourself and have fun

We popped in for an impromptu lunch. Lovely friendly staff although I would say they should pay attention to the state of the tables as ours really should have been cleaned before we ate. That aside my husband loved the fish & chips raving that...More

Visited with family for an early tea. I've always struggled to work out what the lounge is. Is it a pub? A bar? A cafe? Or restaurant. It doesn't seem to have a specific purpose. Anyway. It's definitely worth a look as the food is...More
