Went for a meal and a few beers before we flew. Very close to the airport hotels. Staff very friendly. Food was good and decent sized portion. Couple of ales on which were very nice. Well worth a visit if your nearby

Visited recently and we had made a muck up of the booking but the staff coped brilliantly and cheerfully and made us feel welcome. The food was delicious and hot. The atmosphere was warm and cosy and we weren’t rushed. Will certainly return.
