Stopped here for a drink at the end of our cycle ride but ended up eating here too. Good food portions served by helpful and cheerful staff. May well make a trip here again just for the meal.

Great friendly staff and fantastic food, the portions were generous which was great after a day's kayaking! We arrived as a large group and were seated and catered for with no fuss. Would highly recommend!

Please may I offer you my unreserved apology for the comment that was made, and assure you that there was no malice intended. It was an extremely thoughtless, ignorant and insensitive comment made by a fool, who has been severely reprimanded.
