Came for a family meal, very welcoming and the food was amazing. Very nice staff and a friendly atmosphere. Restaurant area was very small but it made it very cosy, can also eat in the bar area too. Would go back again definitely.

Hi, We have a nut roast that is normally served with cheese but it can be served without, you would just need to request this when ordering.
