Visited for lunch with partner and food was amazing. We both had the buffalo burger and shared Mac & Cheese and chilli beef fries. We would recommend all of these and can't wait to go back again. Would recommend to all.

The 'Old School' burger is probably the best burger I've ever had, the staff are really friendly and the cocktails are good
