We had a couple of drinks here during the week and enjoyed being above the street level with a good view. The food and drinks were very good and tasty. The mulled wine was very much appreciated.

Had dinner included in an event we had booked. The meal was great main course (snapper fillet) wine and desert. But did catch a glance at the pub menu too- have to come back to try nice upper rank pub wise.
