First visit here and I was not disappointed! Lovely food, very fresh, attractively presented. We chose to use the table bbq and it was a great idea. They have a good range of food - caters for vegans and vegetarians too. Staff very friendly and atmosphere relaxed and welcoming. Will go again for certain.
