Dropped in for a late afternoon snack. Very welcoming and dog friendly. Service was quick and attentive. The food however was a little below par. Nice selection of reasonably priced beers.

We had a nice bar meal - beef curry. It was served surprisingly quickly by a very pleasant young man. He returned twice to ask whether everything was OK. It was! We shall return here again!
