What our customers say:

“We really enjoyed our meal here, two children's meals great portion size for the money, I had the slow cooked pork, it was delicious and very filling, topped off with a lemon sorbet. My partner had the lamb dish which looked amazing. And to top it off the free WiFi was really good which pleased the kids.”

Anita Ralph

“Lovely restaurant / pub. Great food and great service, wheelchair friendly and a nice fire place next to our table. We loved it there. Well recommended!”

Christiane Gaud

“We had a large family event,  8 adults and 9 children spanning the whole age range. The staff were fabulous and set aside 3 large tables for us. Service was efficient by serving the 3 tables at the same time,  and there was something to eat to satisfy all tastes. Food was excellent and arrived promptly. Really nice atmosphere, definitely will visit again..”
