Always great for a casual drink and dining!! Outdoor area is a little sun trap! They do really good platters and pizzas. Has a cosy nook with comfy seating. It's also a family friendly bar and restaurant.

Thank you Good Home - we were there for a family birthday and the restaurant made it that extra bit special by bringing out a birthday dessert for the birthday girl. We all thought it made the night a special occasion.
