Stumbled on this place when looking for a dog-friendly place to eat with the family. Staff were really welcoming and friendly. Varied menu, and the fish and chips were outstanding - light, crispy batter and proper home-cooked chips. Great value too.

Food here is cooked fresh so don't expect the usual microwaved food. It's worth waiting for. As such it can be altered to your preferences.e.g My wife can't eat garlic so sauce is made differently for her. Prices are reasonable and staff very helpful and...More
