The one thing you lack is a good selection of beer. Or, should I say, a selection of good beer. One bitter is not enough - especially if it is not to one's taste. I know people who would not dine with you for this reason.

It was Fathers Day so very busy. We did have to wait a while, and ask to see a menu. The staff however apologised and were super polite, and did then check back a number of times to check all was good. The food was first rate.

I often book the table on line p, so much more easier than having to remember to ring up and book. I’ve always had a good meal at this venue, never had a bad one and the staff have always been helpful.

The place is absolutley lovely and bery clean, and the highchairs were perfect. And alot of the food was amazing but anything that was fried i.e onion rings, KIDS chicken goujons were still full of oil when they came to the table and made quite a few of our party feel a bit rough afterwards just cause of the shear amount of oil. The fish and chips was the worst for it. The service was good but we wasnt made aware the burgers etc came with onion rings so we ordered extra when we didnt need them as we werent told when we ordered 3 portions for the table our meals came with it. Frustrating. The burgers and starters/puddings were amazing though. Never had this problem before oil wise so maybe worth keeping an eye on. Thank you though all in all was a pleasant day for my daughters first birthday thank you

Nice Sunday lunch overall only let down was the beef which was 'chewy' did point this out to the waitress who said she would let chef know - no further feedback given to us. Other meats were fine and desserts great !

Service was very good. My main choice was unavailable and they had run out of bacon. Nice atmosphere. Food was nice but on the average side.
