Nice friendly service in the restaurant. Menu had a good selection, nothing particularly adventurous but the choices we made were tasty enough (asparagus and Parma ham for starters and Lindesfarne Chicken and pan fried sea bass for mains). Desserts were average but for less than £60 for two in total, including coffee and wine, it was reasonable value.

We stopped here for a pint on Wed and came back the next night for dinner. Free wi-FI was the draw but the friendly bar keep also influenced our decision. We split a chicken Caesar salad (don't look for romaine lettuce or an especially good dressing, but otherwise tasty) and tried the house special Lindesfarne Chicken which was delicious. Comfortable environment. A good bet. We sat in the bar area both visits and had no trouble finding a table.

Great atmosphere well supported by both visitors and locals. Food of a good quality but seperate dishes to put on your own veg would be nice plated meals are a bit old school.

Sorry you didn't enjoy your visit, dont think it was necessary to remark on the other visitors, old people are allowed to eat out.
