We visited here in 2009 the food was very good, we have returned in 2016 and I would not recommend anybody to dine here. We feel the establishment has taken the wrong turn with producing not so good quality food at the prices they charge. This is my personal judgement. !!

Firstly, thank you for taking time to submit your review, and secondly apologies that we disappointed you, you are quite right in that we have changed our style of food to more “Comfort Food” In 7 years since you’re last visit the market has changed and people’s taste in food has also changed, we aren’t perfect and very occasional we...

We dropped in for lunch en route home and had a fabulous meal. Sausages and bubble and squeak - memorably delicious. Lovely atmosphere, calm and welcoming, plus newspapers. Nothing too much trouble. Will go again.
