They have been delighted with the response from the locals and the restaurant is fully booked most days. The inn also benefits from being in a strong tourist area and a destination location.

A family friendly inn, the restaurant now has 48 covers and a slightly tweaked menu, including new specials, daily choices and Friday night fish suppers. To compliment the food there is a good selection of wines including a popular landlords wine choice from Terry.

The property provides letting accommodation which Terry and Denise have upgraded. They now have 3 en-suite rooms, having added an en-suite to one of the bedrooms, and a further bedroom with a separate bathroom.
