Second week in a row I had the roast pork today. As last week it was absolute quality, roast & new potatoes, cauliflower cheese, maple glazed parsnips with all the trimmings. Will be back again next week.

We had seen this restaurant on Trip Advisor so wanted to try it out for breakfast. We weren’t disappointed, the food was excellent, good value and the service was very good. We are looking to visit in the evening as the reviews are all good...but they only open Friday and Saturday for the evening menu that doesn’t appear on their website.More

We had a Groupon voucher for Steak and wine. This was our first visit and considering the good value of the deal, we were impressed with the quality of both the steak and the wine, plus the salad was lovely and fresh. Added starters and...dessert. Staff were friendly and helpful. One to come back to, very enjoyable evening.More

I couldn’t recommend more!!! Absolutely delicious food, amazing friendly service, relaxed atmosphere and just all over good vibe whether it’s brunch with friends, lunch with family or quick coffee and cake! Covid safe with choice of seating inside and outside. My partners favourite is the...rack of ribs which he described as divine and my go to is the Cuban stew and we both always order chips on a side as those chips are just yummy 😋More
