Very busy because of the local Football derby but we had pre-booked. Pleasant table by the window for the six of us. Waitress was friendly and efficient. We were all very impressed with the food which was attractively presented and tasted good. Also able to leave cars there while walked to the match. Altogether a pleasant experience.

Brought my mum for a surprise lunch - not been here for years. The restaurant is beautiful - very nicely refurbished. First problem was with the waitress. I work in a tipped industry so always give the benefit of the doubt but this girl was just bored, rude, and superior in her attitude. The food was.... OK. My mum's Club... More

Salmon fillet and cheese and onion pie mains washed down with some quality wainwrights real ale. No room or desire for dessert. Food was extremely tasty of good quality... More

First visit to this restaurant for a pre football meal. Excellent quality food. Lovely waitresses, very polite and friendly. We had a table in the restaurant but after the food we ventured outside to the beer garden to sit in the sun. The landlord was sat at the next table (my husband recognised him from photos inside) As we were... More

Went here as a party of six on a Saturday evening. This is a gastro pub and it was very busy but the wait staff were quick and efficient. This is pub food but the presentation, quantity and the food itself was excellent. Given that we had all ordered different starters and mains, they all came out of the kitchen... More

The principle of this is brilliant, the reality was totally different.. there were too many sittings in one day .. before you even got to put the cutlery down on a course it was taken away and the next was there, to the point when you had your desert it felt as though you had to leave. The food was... More
