What a wonderful day, made all the better by the fantastic service and attention to detail by the brillant staff!! The room was perfect - just the right size for our party (30 - 40) and beautifully decorated (even the ladies' loo!) The food just kept on coming and was delicious.

Enjoyed our meal here but menu is quite basic e.g. Onion pie n chips, egg sausage n chips, burgers n chips etc. Restaurant was quite busy when we were there but is typical bar meal type fare.
