Visited here in November. Food was excellent, steaks and sides top class. Service with a smile and a few welcoming words. Can be very busy at certain times. Closes at 10pm mid week. Also very good wine selection.

We stopped here for a quick drink, I ordered a delicious Irish coffee and more importantly scone! I highly recommend it, it was very fresh and served with a fresh jam and cream. I really wish we would have enjoyed a meal here!
