Have been many times now, both in the restaurant and the bar, we have never been disappointed. The food has always been of a good standard, I would especially recommend the tempura prawns and fish and chips. The management and staff are warm and welcoming as is the decor. I’m looking forward to my next Sunday lunch.Lynn D
