Food was gorgeous, first time eating here & will definitely be back. Service was first class (especially a blonde haired girl that served our food, sorry didn't get her name). Very reasonably priced too :-)

Food was excellent, very efficient service, Sophie in particular stood out as being very helpful! Squid and mushroom starters were top notch, fillet steak for mains was very tender. 10/10!!

Not too many places to eat out in the town so ended up here twice. Nothing to write home about, it was pub grub, not restaurant fayre so I'd give our experience of the food 5/10. The service is a different matter. It's poor at...best and absolutely dire if in the slightest bit busy which of course it gets because there isn't many places eat out.. In short, choose your dining time carefully and don't expect anything other than cafe grub.More

We arrived on Sunday 20th March around 1:30 it was extremely busy, we were a party of four one in a very large wheelchair, the staff moved bookings around to different areas and kindly accommodated us at the table closest to the ladies which is...the only table suitable for my brother in laws chair. The food was delicious 😋 and very good value .. service 10/10 really friendly and a great atmosphere.More
