We ate here when staying at a nearby caravan site. The service was great and the food was excellent value. I had the half Cajun spiced chicken with rice and peas. Very tasty and good value at £9 for the portion.

Popped in on spec after briefly looking at the website. Very pleasantly surprised. Huge menu range - we opted for tapas and nachos. Good value (proper main courses two for £14 mid week) washed down with real ale.
