We stopped for Sunday lunch and were just so happy we did. The roast beef melted in your mouth, al dente veges, high rise Yorkshire’s and the sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce was perfect! Yum! We’ll be back!

Response from Milan I | Property representative |
We are dog friendly. We ask customers to use the bar area which is very comfortable. We do prefer notice of vegan requirements to prepare special dishes. Vegetarians are catered for.
