Thought it deserved another good review as just been in the last week and can honestly say the standard of food is very good. The welcome is always warm and friendly. On top of the food they also do a nice pint of cobra !

Last time I order from here. Cold takeaway, rude staff, belittled husband when asked for refund. First time was really nice and got increasingly worse. When it arrived cold I was told to microwave it. Wrong!!!
