Can’t beat the friendly atmosphere of the brew bar, food is always well presented and tastes great. Quick fast service and we are ready for the Quiz night held here every Monday night. Top team.

Popped in for a quick family dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The lamb and halmoumi burger, while not large, was really tasty. Kids meals were good too. We'll be back.
