Staying at a B&B needed somewhere close for a meal. This restaurant was the nearest and we were certainly not disappointed with service, price and quality. Basic decor but not "cheap and tacky".

If only London restaurants were this cheap! Two pints of Ale, Diet Coke, a baileys and creme de menthe "shooter" two starters and two main courses; just over £30! Good quality food and excellent portion sizes.
