The exterior features a floral and pleasant fenced patio area, ideal for al fresco dining or enjoying a glass of wine or ale in the summer. The bar area is made complete with a roaring fire and plenty of alcoves which creates a traditional relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant is spacious and is ideal for large parties and with friendly, courteous staff you’ll be served quickly and efficiently
