I had an enjoyable lunch here with friends. Everyone enjoyed the food and the service was good. There is a charge of £1 for parking for 3 hours. This is deducted from your bill. I would certainly return again.

Staff helpful & friendly. Everyone had a different meal & all food was good. Only complaint was that when paying for car park the area is poorly lit making it difficult to see to pay!

We went here for a family birthday treat and despite having a large table the food was reasonably fast, very tasty and there was excellent service.
