Friendly efficient bar staff in what became quite a crowded Saturday night pub. Eclectic mix of customers: old, young, couples, families - it is a popular venue. Burger was great, staff friendly and enjoying their job. Would definitely recommend.

Regular stack for my husband, and a halloumi one for me, both with the best chips we have had for ages. A bit pricey, but I put that down to the location. We were lucky... More

We came for dinner in the bar area to celebrate a friends birthday. Service was friendly and efficient. I had the fish and pea fish cake. Unfortunately about an hour after eating I had an upset stomach and was sick! Be wary when ordering a fish dish!!
