I have been a few times for lunch recently and have been impressed on all occasions. Service good, quality good and in a decent location a few minutes drive from the town centre.

Good menu with a wide choice, in a nice relaxed area with good service. The food is good although most of it is deep fried. But then this is the restaurant of a pub.
