You know when you go somewhere and it just feels right? This is one of those places. It has a lovely ambience with excellent service and superb food. As it was 3pm, we were struggling to find anywhere that served food and finally stumbled on this gem of a place. The food arrived within 15 mins and it was delicious.... More

Visited before and have wrote reviews on this place before as well. Vistes again with NY partner last night was a lot quiter than it has been before and we went for the tapas menu. Got to say it was the best we have had here and the presentation was far better this time. Looking forward to are next visit!

We were here about 18 months ago and it was very good. I am pleased to say that the standards have not faltered in any way. 10 delicious Tapas dishes were slightly more than we could eat and the ale was well kept and similarly delicious. Friendly and helpful staff make this a great way to spend time.

A pub serving a variety of pub grub. Friendly staff and extensive menu including tapas. Club sandwich, tuna melt, tea and soft drink came in at £19.00. Was very quiet when we went in but seems it's popular in the evenings.

Went in for an early meal prior to cinema visit at 1800hrs. Made to feel very welcome, as it was 1630hrs offered the choice of lunch time and evening menu, which gave us a really good selection. Really pleasant atmosphere, very clean, great service with smashing food at a very reasonable price. Will definitely be going again.
