    Excellent food - roast dinner was lovely. Service was OK, could have been warmer. The toilet was a big let down, dirty, hot tap not working, very dark and close to the kitchen which didn’t feel hygienic. There was a large group on a table behind us who were very loud, whilst this can’t be helped it did rather spoil our experience
