Great and efficient service - couldn't be better! We had the Pepper Steak pies with salad and they definitely hit the spot. One of us followed this with the Fluffy scones which were just as promised. We'd definitely go back.

Hi I'm just a reviewer, not the owner. But pretty sure they weren't open in the evenings.
