I stopped on Saturday 15th and my attention was drawn to Bryson's.The outside of the premises looked inviting and it was clear that it combined a bar and restaurant.

We went for a meal to Bryson's tonight. The food was faultless and the waitress was very attentive. We will definitely be back...food was at a very reasonable price and was to a very high standard! Would recommend it to any of our friends 😊
