My husband and I stopped for a drink and snack on Sunday afternoon. We had some cheese and bacon potato skins - they were delicious. Good priced restaurant. Helpful staff.

Very fast service, huge portion of ribs with loads of sweet potato fries couldn't finish it all. Plenty of napkins and a fingerbowl to wash you hands in at the table

Good selection of English and American food. Freshly prepared. Friendly service. The only drawback would be the service is rather slow, so fine if you are not in a hurry.

Great for kids as it is 1 of 2 places in town to have a kids menu. Only issue but it just may be my issue is the seating, very noisy chairs when getting out from the table also the chairs are not that comfortable but the service is great
