We stopped in after a long hike, asked to have tea by the fireplace in the lobby and they were more than happy to accommodate us. Very nice break in the afternoon.

Had dinner here one night. Great food in a pub with good atmosphere. Attentive staff and the barman even went out of his way in letting me sample different beers prior to ordering.

We both had Steak for main and the starter was beautiful and the desserts were to die for...Will be back again very soon.

Really welcoming bar and restaurant. Good selection for a mixed group, and the food was absolutely fantastic. Superior to many of its neighbors. Perfect for dinner or a snack. Staff were great too.
