Nice location, and clean, with very friendly staff. Meals... I had Ribs n chicken - yummy. Wedges were insanely nice. Missus had the Pasta wrapped in ham, with brilliant sauce. Kids thought the Parma was only 7.5/10 tho, thus marking down slightly.

Blustery weather meant soup was called for. Entered this gorgeous little place to a fantastic welcome and fast efficient service. Had Soup of the day "Cream of Broccoli" served with thick buttery slices of Sourdough Bread. Delicious!!
