Would certainly recommend
Booked a table at short notice for lunch on 21 July via the web, which was easily done. We had seats in the conservatory which we prefer, having eaten here before. The food was very good, especially the homemade steak pie. A few mistakes made in the orders (plain chips rather than sweet potato fries and later shandy instead of butter shandy). Nothing serious and so quickly rectified. Service was at a good pace and we didn't feel hurried. I would certainly recommend this place.
