Delicious and comfort food, great service and company. We had full English breakfast, good value for money. Our first visit but definitely not the last one.

From the TA reviews we were looking forward to visiting for breakfast. Apart from getting the order wrong, the fried eggs were burnt. Food was average. Service was ok. Even though we were seated well away from the kitchen, the poor ventilation extract system resulted...More

A busy lunch time with a full house but a warm welcome and quickly brought the menu. Lots of choice plus a specials board. The food looked and tasted delicious and was served quickly in spite of being busy. Certainly worth a visit,
