Made welcome on arrival. I asked about parking as there is no on-site parking. You can only park across the road in Asda for max 3 hrs. Luckily I eat in the Pub next door and sweet- talked the landlady into letting me leave it in theirs. The Chef was late as he over slept but the wait was worth it as the food was lovely.
