    Lovely meal, had Sunday Roast. Third time of going, I had a Roast before but their was less meat this time, still fine though. Atmosphere very chilled and relaxed. Staff are lovely, happy kind and attentive. Would definitely recommend.

    Lovely staff - we'd been before. This was our first time for Sunday lunch and I think we all preferred the weekday menu. However the value for money is good and nice to have a good place to eat so close to home.
