Have been to this place on several occasions, the last being on May 13. we had a beer each and shared their special wedges (spicy with cheese and bacon). Their menu is actually much more extensive than this.

So slow. Beer gone before food came. Had to go to bar after I was told there was table service because, so slow. Asked for butter, never came. Very bland pot pie. Excellent drink selections reasonable prices.

The food here was excellent, fresh with interesting flavours. The outdoors area was well laid out with plenty of shelter. The only major downside was the music, MTV spouting tasteless songs, and the waitress singing along tunelessly every time she came outside to clear something.
