Had a lovely meal last night, menu was varied and catered for all palates. Service was excellent and all the staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend the lovely homemade mango cheesecake for dessert, and the delightful beer garden was a tranquil haven.

Staff and owners are very friendly and welcoming. The food was amazing, cannot recommend highly enough! Great atmosphere with lovely locals, and the beer garden is perfect for summer nights! Five star!

Our basic menu is usually supplemented by a wide range of specials and utilises local produce wherever practical.
