I haven't eaten here in a few years after a really disappointing meal last time. This time couldn't have been more different. From the friendly greeting, helpful staff, well cooked food. The atmosphere is low key and surprisingly not as loud as one would expect...More

We really enjoy the meals here, they are large portions and not just your standard basic pub/bar food. Desserts are good too!
