Really like popping in here for a Sunday lunch, the food is really good and the staff are very nice. I love the fact you can get good old fashioned deserts like spotty duck and jam roll and custard. The main menu looks good too.

Thank you for your review. I think there was some misunderstanding. All dishes which have the option of chips or fries have a choice as a no cost option. Only sweet potato wedges are a £1 extra, as noted in the menus. I apologise this...More
