Always great - one of our favourites. Nice to sit outside in the lovely garden, especially with the new Herb planting. Our waitress was lovely - Sorry didn’t catch her name - dark hair, slight accent, definitely a lady not a girl :) She was polite friendly but not intrusive. Good always good, prices have gone up a tad - but never mind paying for quality. Would and do always recommend!
