I was pleasantly surprised at the good service and delicious food. I enjoyed lamb burger with the house salad. Both are highly recommended. My friends all enjoyed their meals. The staff are great and very helpful. I would definitely return.

Hostess lead us to a booth with a view to the street. This time we went for Sheppard's pie. Light beer and Ginger Ale supported... Loved the smile of the waitress.

Maybe not for a quiet romantic meal, but good food, served promptly and very tasty - even some vegetables! I liked the local cider, but why is it a suggestion they serve it with ice? it's chilled already and ice just dilutes it! Grumble over....More
