Just had an amazing lunch - had the fish and chips and the chickpea burger. I'm a vegetarian but my boyfriend isn't, it is really nice to go somewhere that has a great menu for both of us. Fresh food, great sauces (tomato & chili chutney), nice staff and good service. Will definitely be going back soon and would highly... More

The menu has some great choices and everyone in a group of 9 loved their meal! The pub is in beautiful condition and well maintained. The garden area is huge, lovely and kept looking very tidy. Plenty of parking space and very friendly staff! A* lunch out :)

Lip stick on pint glass Order not initially put through (so our table was not all served together, by over 20 mins). 2 of the orders initially came incomplete (Special duck served without pancheta, Special burger initially served without the salad), with no apology - the incompleteness was obvious, given that those two meals had been also been ordered by...

I took three Dutch friends, one a vegan, to this pub for an impromptu lunch. As usual, nothing was too much trouble, the vegan was more than happy, as we all were. Great atmosphere, locals reading papers over coffee, couple in a corner having breakfast (at midday!). My Dutch friends want to come back again!

Great car park (nice, as car parking comes at a premium in this congested part of the city). There are about 10 to 16 off-road parking spaces (see pic). Bar and waitress service excellent. Food superb; wide and varied choices, reasonably priced mains (£7-£16), tasteful retro chic environment. Our only quibble was, despite the place having a light, spacious and... More

We visited for an early Easter Lunch. Even when we arrived diners were enjoying a late brunch. We had Salmon, Sausage and Mash, Unthank burger, Flat Iron steak, venison pie - much more interesting than the usual beef, rice balls, interesting, unusual and quite delicious and children's sausage and mash, all wonderful except for the child's mash which was particularly...

Staff friendly and helpful. Roast beef cooked to perfection but i can make better Yorkshire Puddings. Veg ok nothing special. Hubby had The Works breakfast not all that amazing beans looked like they had been in a pot all weekend, also no tomatoes as he is allergic yep came with tomatoes. Pretty average not outstanding.

We returned to this bar/restaurant because we had enjoyed our previous visit about a year ago. We weren't disappointed! The ambience is warm and friendly, a place that seems to cater both for locals and visitors with ease. The staff were friendly and efficient, we enjoyed an excellent bottle of Viognier and a decent glass of Pinotage with olives and... More
