Me and my partner come here a few times while we were away, we tried the breakfast, desserts and a few drinks. The breakfast were lovely and the desserts also. The staff are very very friendly, polite and helpful. They show all major sports and has a great atmosphere. I recommend this place for a few drinks or a meal.

Food was acceptable and cooked well. Comfort was minimal. As non smokers we were surrounded on terrace by smokers. Kitchen staff were scruffy. Kitchen looked scruffy.

My son craved pub food, so in we went. To be honest, that's what we got. Not for me, I had a chicken curry, with a naan bread. Obviously not the chef's speciality.
