We have not visited The Bubble for many years, but it was recommended by friends,, so decided to give it a try. What a lovely experience, we received, excellent, friendly service, the owner definitely had his eye on the ball, but all the staff were friendly and efficient. The tables were clean, food, fresh, cooked really well and good value....
