Lovely lunch, amazingly speedy service despite being busy from very friendly staff. We had a small Roast beef and a roast chicken, plenty of veg and crispy Yorkshire puddings and great value. Would recommend and will call again.

Passing by and decided to pop in for a quick bite, so glad we did. Food was perfectly cooked and well presented, delicious and a feast of complimenting flavours. The lemon drizzle on the salmon was pure heaven! It was our first visit since it...More
