You’ve just made a restauranteur very happy. I shall pass the kind words on to the hard working staff. Thank you

Great food, surroundings and reasonable prices. Service was a bit slow but very polite staff. Main issue is finding somewhere to park as pat and display bays or nearby chargeable car park.
