Great service and food and they allow dogs in the bar area. Very reasonably priced lunch menu, even cooked something not on the menu for our fussy children. Children,s food is also free when an adult meal is purchased - amazing!

Fabulous meal! Started with haddock Goujons with tartare sauce then fresh fleetwood sea bass with mashed potato and cabbage and finished with yummy sticky toffee pudding with ice cream. All delicious. Lovely staff and lovely ambience. Altogether a lovely anniversary meal
