Ideal for a family lunch, we enjoy the fact the menu caters for burger lovers and salad lovers too. Great starters and generous portions. The staff are always friendly and the choice of local gins is fantastic too.

Nice food, hosting was friendly and helpful. The interior is kitch retro style. Small section of draft beer and larger and wine list is helpful if you don't know much about wine.

What a fantastic place to eat and drink. We ate the chicken with the mushroom sauce and steak which was cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this lovely place if you're in the area.
