For a pub restaurant it was over priced. Good thing was that it was open on a Sunday evening and is in the middle of town. Service average.

Normally I am not a Cobb and Co fan,but this is the second time I have eaten here and I am really impressed. The staff are really friendly. The meals are very reasonably priced, and faultless. Love the atmosphere and the senior menu. Totally recommend.
