“The food was absolutely delicious. We got a half order of the fish and chips, half Shepard’s pie, and a Chicken welly so that we could try a little of everything. Highly recommend these three dishes, the shepherds’ pie might be the best I’ve had. Afterward, we both got desserts. Chocolate molten cake and the butter&chocolate bread pudding. It doesn’t stop there. What’s even better than the food, was the service. Excellent food, fantastic service, great prices. We will definitely be coming back. Will definitely Highly recommend this gem.” – Travis O.
