Stopped for a brief lunch. The food is good with good prices. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The surroundings are very clean and unusual - looks a bit like an old church! Recommended.

No-one in the place. Said they didn't serve food that night - bank holiday Monday. So we had a quick drink and left. Nothing to recommend the place.
