I ate here with two other family members on a Sunday evening. There was only one option (beef) for the Sunday Roast, but the rest of the menu was very good, including several vegetarian options. The fire was roaring, and it had a lovely atmosphere....More

Very poor. Went for a meal expecting good food and good service and could not have been more disappointed. The staff looked like they couldn't be bothered and the owner was just unhelpful and almost to the point of being rude. Wouldn't recommend this and...More

Went with a family group. At least three meals were, sadly, very disappointing. The other meals weren't commented on so no idea if they were alright.

Arrived at 7-15pm. Order wasn't taken until 7-45pm. Main meal finally arrived at 8-45pm! It was a soggy, greasy mass. Won't be going back. Service was very slow. Shame as this was supposed to be a special meal with our daughter.
