What Our Guests Have To Say

Yet again a very nice lunch time meal, & our waitress Emma was excellent, we have been back many times since the revamp & will continue to do so if the food & service keeps to the same standard :-)
Fabulous service from Kris this week. Made for a very enjoyable evening while celebrating a birthday. Lovely ribs and wine
I have visited on 4 seperate occasions recently with friends and also as a couple. Never had any issues. The food is yummy, the menu is exciting lots of choice. The service is brilliant. Everyone is polite and helpful. The whole place is clean and tidy. It's going to be my first choice every time now.
