Nothing beats the weekend feeling, and boy can we get you in that mood!  Our welcoming staff can whip you up any drink your heart desires!

See you soon…

The kitchen offers a combination of classic dishes, light bites, comfort food to suit all appetites from lunchtime onwards.  Try out our Steak on hot lava stones which you can sizzle in the middle of the table!
