We visited on Sunday so were lucky to be able to choose from The Sunday Menu. The items featured on the Sunday menu really are some of the best highlights of what’s on offer in the main menu. The head chef Rick Orr has a wealth of experience and knows what his customers want to see on the menu. We were not disappointed by the selection.



The Food

For Starter we chose to have Vegetable spring rolls with soba noodles and a hot & sour dipping sauce. This was wonderfully presented and incredibly tasty. We also chose to have Nacho grande with nacho cheese, house relish salsa, sour cream, baby leek & guacamole which was just an explosion of flavours. Well sized portions for starters.



For mains we chose to have Craft beer battered haddock, sweet peas, hot lemon & balsamic with malden salted home-cut fries. This is the ultimate fish and chips restaurant style. My only criticism of this dish is that it was served in a basket and on a board. Eating peas off a board is quite a challenge. We also chose to have the Armagh Ham which had a great flavour. The ham was tender and served with a potato cake and greens. A great Sunday lunch choice.
