Friendly, helpful staff from booking a table to paying the final bill.

Server was a real comedian, offering me “slightly smaller lunchtime portions” – as if! But good to know. I think she was suggesting I could lose some weight.

Yes, the food was excellent, albeit at a slightly higher overall cost than expected, it was the lovely rib-eye steak that did it! My fish & chips was truly excellent as was the delicious sorbet ice-cream.

My wife had the Honey & Apricot dessert (see photo) which was something she’d never seen or tasted before; she is exalting its uniqueness even now.

We also noticed lots of customers having the burgers that looked fab – guess what I will be having next time, along with a pint of Cheeky Bustard. Atmosphere (outside) was great; nice (front) garden table, the sun came out for a few minutes too.

Like Arnie, we’ll be back – for my birthday lunch in a couple of weeks’ time. Can’t wait!
