We were so blessed to find this absolutely delightful pub. We were given a very warm welcome and thank goodness there was a table free which suited us very well. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble even when I threw water everywhere, accidentally I hasten to add! Our drinks and food order was taken at our table by the most... More

Booked a table for 10 in advance and the team were extremely helpful from start to finish. There was a good atmosphere and the food was great too - staff were more than happy to cater to our requirements and make excellent recommendations. Would definitely come again.

Really nice menu and the food was good enough to back It up! Great selection of beers on tap! The only bad thing was that the toilet was in bad condition

David our waiter was great. Lovely welcome , great service. A few hiccups but he sorted everything out swiftly. Squid and patatas bravas yummy, veggie burger not that good. Would highly recommend for that gastronomic pub experience. Kitchen inside the bar on show and great atmosphere.

My partner and I have just completed 'Dry January' for Cancer Research. There was never any debate about where we would break our fast of booze. We travelled up from Wales after work on a Friday, managed to find a cosy table in the corner and had a lovely evening (damn that beer tasted good!) The pair of us had... More
