I soon realized that this was a popular place judging by the few spaces left in the car park at 12.30. Four of us for lunch, just as well we had reserved a table. Extensive... More

Our starters, brie wedges and garlic mushrooms, were a great way to start our meal, and the mains (chicken new yorker and liver and bacon) were very tasty. The side salads were undressed but we were offered a balsamic dressing which was... More

We have gone here for an evening meal quite a few times but decided to try their Sunday roast. What a lovely treat. The owners and staff are always so friendly and attentive. The roast is the best we have had in a very long time. The vegetables were all fresh and the meat was delicious. We totally enjoyed it... More
