Thanks for your review, so good to still be a place where people feel happy to either have a great meal or just pop in for a pint and a natter!

Atmosphere in this restaurant was really pleasant . Staff were friendly and the food menu consisted of fresh local dishes. Plenty of local wines on the menu as well. Good value for the money. Convenient location and lots of parking spots around. Great restaurant.
