Stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Had the fish pie which was delicious, service was great and could not fault. Loved the heritage decor mixed with modern decor. Will be back!

Great beer selection and an amazing Gin Menu. Quiet enough from the busy spots and cosy atmosphere. Good place to get you're gin on!

Been here 3 times over the years, but I think I've finally given up - food is never particularly good (and in the most recent case, it was cold and tough). Nice atmosphere and sometimes good service though.

this pub has had a major overhaul and it is the funkyist place now and very popular with the city types and everyone else. Lots of old lampshades, cut glass hanging from the ceiling, beer garden with 3 great booths including huge retro lights hanging in each, great food, excellent staff and good wine list too. It ticks all my boxes. They seem like a happy bunch of staff which always makes it a better experience for the likes of me
