Our party of ten dined there last evening. Not a complaint amongst us. Excellent food. Speedy Service. Pleasant and friendly staff. And good value for money.
Moved into the pub afterwards and continued our evening there. Going back? Oh yes!

Food was excellent and was freshly prepared. Nice relaxed evening, we weren't rushed and nothing was too much trouble. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wine list was extensive and staff helped us choose the perfect bottle. Would recommend and will be returning ourselves soon.

Thank Michelle C

Went there for lunch with my wife and had the cajun chicken ciabatta and steak ciabatta. Food was average to good (6/10)

Cajun chicken ciabatta was tasty but the steak ciabatta was a bit plain. Great chips !

Overall good value for money though. Fast friendly service.
