Our food was excellent but took about 45 minutes to arrive.

The staff were apologetic and were working hard.

Was the place understaffed? Was the chef late for his/her shift?

Who knows.

The place wasn't especially busy but it did take a very long time to get food to our table and to several tables around us.

We found the food reasonable value for money and the staff were courteous.

The surroundings/decor are probably in need of an update, but this is a pretty 'honest' and unpretentious place and we shall probably return if passing through again.

Went to eat and take in the music session on a Tuesday night. The menu was a typical bar menu with some pub classics and other items. The food was well cooked and well presented. Although busy the service was efficient and courteous. After eating we stayed to enjoy the music session resulting in a very convivial evening.

Before 12 it's just breakfast on the menu, so a cream and jam scone and Cappuccino was my preference. Friendly staff, spacious and in a very quaint location.

Nice food but very poor service. Tables were very slow to be cleared and it took 20 minutes to get a sandwich made and when I got it everyone else had nearly finished eating. Good food once I got it. Staff pleasant.

Had a nice Sunday lunch in here. Roast beef with all the trimmings and although the staff were run off their feet, they were still able to raise a smile.
