Quite expensive for what you get but as one would expect when you are a captured audience. Nice and relaxed though and good views when you sit outside.

I had bolognaise with jacket potato coleslaw salad. Was extremely good with a decent salad on size and very reasonably priced for a very large portion. Husband had quiche which was home made and v good.
