of nooks and crannies. In the winter months, cosy up by the roaring log fire and enjoy a quality tipple or a delicious home-cooked meal.

On Monday evening, you can also stop by for the restaurant’s popular curry night. To round off your meal, why not indulge in the cheesecake of the day or the moreish apple pie? The Sunday roast is a firm favourite; expect quality meat, seasonal veg and all the usual trimmings, and note that booking in advance is recommended. Accompanying the delicious food offering is a fantastic selection of real ale and lager, and a choice of wine and spirits.

It’s easy to understand the popularity of this wonderful establishment, where friendly service and excellent food make a memorable impression. You’ll likely find yourself drawn back to this fantastic spot time and time again.
