Reviewed yesterday NEW

Popped in for lunch and was greatly surprised by the quality fish dishes on offer. My daughter and I had the plaice which was fantastic . Service was really good with sturdy and clean high chairs, also offering our group a larger table when it became available. People should give this place / plaice an opportunity

Me and my family came here for Mother's Day. We ordered a roast dinner followed by desert, and it was spot on. We couldn't fault it at all. I would definitely recommend coming here. One of the best roasts I have had in a while. Thank you very much for a lovely evening.

It was the attention to detail that mad all the difference - chocolates in the room, flowers on th Sunday, the super breakfasts - lots of fish choice. The carvery on the Sunday evening was excellent and I am not a fan of carveries! Staff couldn't do enough for us, Thank you. I will certainly be back.
