    Good food, excellent service, friendly atmosphere. I recommend the scotch egg to start with. The fish and chips were excellent and the treacle tart was brilliant. Well worth a return visit.

    Very nice meal and excellent desserts. Our only negative was that my husbands beef was tough and difficult to cut. My chicken was excellent very tasty.
