After a few years of only opening for breakfast and lunches, the owners have decided to start opening for evening meals again. A nice selection of tasty starters and mains coupled with friendly hostess made for a very pleasant dining experience.

Winter is coming! and very happy to see this lovely spot offering their menu in the evenings. Excellent value and service and the curry, chowder and beef cheeks just divine. Great honest food, with a lovely cosy atmosphere.
