    We had a lovely lunch: my cheese fondue was superb, the GF carbonara too and the pizza could have done with being smaller but more thicker topping. The service was excellent, the staff very attentive and helpful.

    Well organised, we had pre-booked but had to join the queue with others who hadn't however the manager soon asked for those that had booked to go first. Service was a little slower than before lockdown but the food just az good. We will be going again soon.

    Best feature.... Our waitress 'Cat', efficient, knowledgeable, truthful and very very funny, she made our evening. Food was good, but chips could do with more seasoning, could not taste the rosemary or the salt.
