Very nice; we arrived at 1pm on a Sunday and it was quiet but was totally full by 2pm... The roast dinner was actually very good at £16.95, much better than most of the local pub lunches and we noticed most people chose the roast lamb which is often not offered elsewhere - it was also particularly good with two thick wedges of fat-free rose lamb. Would definitely go back though the starters and puddings were overpriced so we didn't have them.
Great customer service and everyone was really helpful and friendly. Both meals were delicious and well presented. Really enjoyed my glass of the Chenin blanc too!
Really delicious food in a fab outdoors setting. I would highly recommend for a summers evening, for both couples and small groups. The staff were also really friendly.
