Great little restaurant with friendly staff and delicious food! We had the salt beef hash which was delightfully delicious! After chicken for our main course we were so full so could only manage a coffee!

We had a delicious dinner last night in this friendly and cosy village restaurant. The service is excellent and the menu is fantastic - really varied and we all fancied many dishes on the menu. They have a great value set menu which I opted for. They were very understanding with my allergies and catered accordingly. Will definitely be coming back for dinner. It’s already a breakfast favourite.
