What a find! This is a lovely clean friendly village serving restaurant quality food. There is a fairly extensive menu with good variety freshly prepared. Prices are reasonable catering for a good mix of budgets. Car essential.

We also had naught deserts of sticky toffee pudding, cheesecake, ice cream and crumble.... More

Everything about this restaurant was enjoyable. Fish is a specialty and mine was excellent. Friendly service and the place was deservedly busy.
