Always pop in for Sunday lunch every year while on holiday and it's never a let down. Lovely home cooked food and great service. Who could ask for more? 3 courses £11.95 - excellent. See you next year.

Booked a table for evening meal. Excellent service and great choice of menu. Made to feel very welcome by the staff. Restaurant is separated from the main bar which has many original features, and has live music on certain nights.. Will definitely return.
