This restaurant serves excellent food, at great value for money and very friendly staff. Heide really goes out of her way to make one feel at home. However, a cleanup and refurbishment is definitely way overdue.

Meals served were very average. Cutlery and crockery cheap and nasty, decor ok. Coffee served was awful as restaurant did not seem to have a percolator. Unlikely that I will return.

Looking for a local pub, then this is the place. Reasonable bar with fair service & a few screens to watch sport on. Looking for good food at decent prices, look elsewhere. Place is a bit run down.

I went on a business trip and stayed over for one night. The experience was not good. The bed was uncomfortable with old linen. In front of the shower the mats were soggy, dirty and old. The room is basic and everything looks dilapidated. The...More
