We were so impressed after eating the Sunday Roast here. The food quality was very good and service was good. I’ll be coming here again for a Sunday Roast and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. It’s also dog-friendly which is helpful.

Very welcoming and friendly staff who brought the dogs water and biscuits. Had a lovely seafood salad and my husband had fish and chips. Both of which were super. Sat in the garden with a very reasonably priced bottle of wine. A great lunch.
