The current manager/owners background is in managed houses, after successfully running a number of sites for many years they moved to the independent sector in 2009, after 5 years running a small tied leasehold pub making good profits they purchased the freehold of this restaurant in 2014 and further to a series of investments, have taken the business from strength to strength.
