Gracious service in this very traditional bar. They host local musicians for sessions. You can bring you pup in, too. It is part of the lovely and welcoming hotel by the same name.

Before 12 it's just breakfast on the menu, so a cream and jam scone and Cappuccino was my preference. Friendly staff, spacious and in a very quaint location.

Nice food but very poor service. Tables were very slow to be cleared and it took 20 minutes to get a sandwich made and when I got it everyone else had nearly finished eating. Good food once I got it. Staff pleasant.
