Eating out is a treat, so to go somewhere that is warm, friendly and welcoming from the minute you walk in the door, makes the outing even more enjoyable - the Blue Cod, salad and fries was yummy.

Made to feel very welcome. Fire going so nice and warm. Good selection on menu. Waitresses very polite and helpful. The caramelised onion and blue cheese flatbread was amazing.

MY boyfriend and I come here lots and we always get wonderful service, the pizza and fries are absolutely delicious, it can get quite busy so sometimes pays to book. The prices are very reasonable too.

Very casual place with cool old wood floor. Went in late in the evening for a quite bit to eat. Pizza was good and fun place to hang out.

We had a family birthday dinner here with 3 different generations. It had a decent range of kids meals and while we waited quite a while for our meal, all 16 of us ate together, receiving our meals in a timely manner with each other.
