We visited here in July and really enjoyed it! The food is delicious, the burgers are definitely worth a try! It is quite small, but it does have a lovely atmosphere. Would return and recommend.

Food is always lovely here, but watch out for soft drink prices: 50p for soda water and a crippling £1.60 for a pint of squash! Also £1.75 for a 1/2 pint of casket ale.

We ate with friends, the menu is extensive and reasonably priced. Be patient if there is a crowd in, the small kitchen works methodically to ensure the dishes are cooked well. The burgers are worth trying!

Service a little slow. Customers standing drinking at the bar makes it difficult to get served. Atmosphere good. Food very good.
