From the moment we walked in we had excellent service. Jordan offered us indoor seating or outside in the ‘secret garden’. We sat outside in a quiet private little nook. There was good music which added to the atmosphere. Jordan was excellent, we were never without a drink and our food was delicious. I had the Sunday roast which was a good portion and very tasty. It was very reasonably priced and my daughter enjoyed the 2 for 1 cocktails.

Went Saturday with a party of 10 for the bottomless brunch, staff were fantastic, attentive and even went a bought a gluten free roll for someone having a chicken bun.  Always asking if we wanted more drinks and food was great. Cannot praise them enough especially the on duty manager – Just brilliant
