Good local food and friendly staff but our table near the door was not ideal as we got a cold draught each time the door opened. Note, you need to book, bring your own alcohol and cash only.

Wasn't crazy about this place on their Fish and Chips night.It's not really what we were hoping for menu wise but that's our fault for not picking up that that's all they do on a Friday. Service was appallingly slow, really awful. Fish and chips...More
