Called in while recovering from long walk. There is a varied menu and picked a pizza. I love pizza and thought you couldn't get a bad one. However this was one of the best pizza I have ever had. Amazing ! Good service too.

Stopped by for dessert and a hot drink one evening with our dog. Extremely friendly and welcoming staff, couldn't have asked for better service. Delicious food, the bread and butter pudding is to die for, try it!! Highly recommend this place.

I sort of feel that maybe the poor service was due to the fact that we were not locals because the many locals seemed to get more attention than we did. The food was just okay. To be fair, it could just be that we...More

We were charged £6, YES £6 for two teas. The waiter originally charged us £5, which was steep enough, then changed his price to £6 when he brought the tea. It wasn't even a good quality tea. We won't be returning.

After ordering we waited about 20 minutes before enquiring whether the kitchen had forgotten our order, to which the arrogant front-of-house man replied "no" without even checking and just stared at me. When it finally arrived, the food was nice, but my wife spotted the...More

The meal was outstanding with a good choice to suit most tastes and also a specials board. The dessert menu was also a good range again with a specials board. The staff are very attentive without going 'overboard'. Will definitely be dining there again.
