Hello,
Love the new interior, we ended up inside as down the back driveway quite far away. Looking forward to deck area opening. Sadly a table of 30 arrived outside we were told and we waited 40 mins for our meal. We were offered a free round of drinks as a courtesy which was appreciated.

Very spruced up new design (miss the clocks). Food as good as always, staff helpful and cheerful. All the COVID regulations well handled and and spacing adhered to.
And of course in the middle of it all the lovable and affable Tony.
