We shared a table for ten, and all enjoyed the quality traditional fare. The pies were a stand out. The chips were however a little cold. The service was attentive. Overall a good choice for a large group.

Went there for a business meeting and it’s a good environment for that. Good drinks in a nice environment and good atmosphere. The food was more of traditional English food and if you don’t like english food you’ll be disappointed otherwise it’s an ok choice.

Lunch for about 60 in a room on the first floor. A bit crowded as we had drinks in the same room beforehand. Beef main course was delicious. Service was excellent. Mirrors all around the room were a bit disconcerting!
