Nice atmosphere. Friendly service. Reasonably priced. Cool staff and we asked for slightly off menu (Caesar Salad for main) and nothing too much hassle. We are going back.
my partner & i had a superb sunday roast here - he had chicken while i had beef, and both were excellent! took our little pup along & they could not have been more accommodating, despite her endless enthusiasm for tearing up & down the restaurant! the friendliest staff & nice laid back vibe. will definitely be back soon!
Very friendly cosy place to be on a cold winters day. I was impressed by our starters, and the quality and choice available. We will definitely be back
