Had a very poor meal at this place, looked like a microwaved affair. Very small portion with stuffing looked like paste. Will not be back!

Just had the most fabulous meal with my family at this pub/restaurant. The 20 minute wait for a table was worth it. The service was excellent and the food hot and delicious. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. A good menu choice for starters, main course and dessert. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

The menu initially seemed quite expensive, however, the food arrived quickly and portion sizes were very generous. I had the lasagne which was delicious. We shared the Malteser Cheesecake for dessert but... More
