Warm and friendly reception. Spacious tables, plenty of room. Although mainly a restaurant, the bar area has been retained providing a nice pub feeling. Food is far above pub meal standard, with locally sourced ingredients.

Fabulous food - chosen from the set priced menu. Great value, tasty additional veg, all lovely and hot and served by polite, non intrusive staff who made you feel it really was their pleasure to serve you. Desserts were all amazingly tasty - including the cheese. Will definitely be going back. Picked up a menu for Mothering Sunday.
