We called in when visiting the Antique Centre for lunch. Good food served in nice surroundings and also served fairly swiftly. Worth a visit if you are visiting the Centre.

. We were warmly welcomed with our family for lunch and our orders were promptly taken and there was no great delay with the serving of the food. Best to book as the restaurant can be very busy. On site free parking.

Came recommended and I can see why! We had a table for four and the place was packed. Tried the soup, fish chowder, and two burgers. Everything was excellent and staff were attentive. Great selection of excellent home baking also. Reasonably priced.
