Walked in to a nice ambience. Staff friendly. We were spoiled for choice over 3 menu's. The food was served in sensible portions, cooked well and was very tasty. And all at a very reasonable price. Well done!

Have been before, but a bit disappointed this time around. Service was good, but the food just didn’t quite match the standard of previous visits. Also the dining room was chilly, so we didn’t hang around.
