This is a great place to eat - friendly, popular, reasonably priced, safe and free parking and a good selection of tasty dishes. Quite atmospheric and really worth a visit.

Visited here due to staying in the premier inn nearby. Service was slow and food was not great. Wouldn’t visit again.

We arrived for a light lunch and had the best customer service which was so friendly and helpful. The food was well cooked and yummy, the outstanding moment was our amazing waiter called Les who looked after us, he was so attentive and helpful.
