Awesome bite to eat in the evening. Pulled pork burger absolutely to die for and my wife thoroughly enjoyed her salmon and roast potatoes. Well recommended for visitors.

The veggie burger on their menu is apparently vegan. It was huge and comes with a tapenade sauce. The seedy bun was good. We got a side of fries to share between two.
