Our first visit to this wonderful restaurant.

We started our meal with two large glasses of wine, followed by the roast beef Sunday roast with a side dish of cauliflower cheese. We then had a dessert each followed by two coffee’s to finish our meal.
The staff were all attentive and polite and we never felt rushed.
