Had a take away burger and chips on Friday, far better than your average fast food at a very reasonable price. Fish and chips also available (one for this Friday) 👌🏻

What a surprise to find such a quirky, friendly and cosy restaurant inside an ordinary building. The woman who greeted us was friendly and seemed to do everything and did it really well. The food was nicely cooked and presented with something for everyone. It's well worth a visit, the drive is stunning and booking essential at the weekend.

We sat in the dog friendly part, basically a mock waiting room between the 2 carriages. The food was very good, daughters burger and home made chips off the kids menu was good. Husband had crab linguine that he really enjoyed. I had lamb off specials board, mint gravy and red cabbage a bit too strong on the vinegar for... More
