It has a fair amount of parking and is reasonably accessible. The lounge area is small and cosy with two two seater settees and for... More

We saw that it had been reinstated to the Tastecard scheme & now has a 5* hygiene rating. We booked a table on line & I specifically requested not to... More

The side salad was quite nice, I had mashed potato and it was awful, If... More

My wife and I had a date night here Christmas Eve for our anniversary. The waitress was so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was terrific. The only minor suggestion I would have for them is to get new chairs. The springs on some have gone, fortunately I moved one from another table which was fine. Decor... More
