Friendly and excellent value

Friendly barman who advised on food and good beer. Friendly and chatty locals. Bit small if busy. We missed the music which would be welcome. I think you have to pay sometimes so check first. We had tapas which was excellent and filling.

Visited recently after reading the reviews, ordered one chicken and one beef roast. Potatoes were obviously the frozen kind. Broccoli was hardly cooked. There was also some strange onion and mixed pepper side garnish. The gravy for the chicken roast tasted like a chicken cuppa soup and overpowered the rest of the dinner. The Yorkshires although homemade, we're not that... More

We stopped by for lunch today at this delightful, cosy little pub and had the most delicious meal which had obviously been prepared with a lot of care and thought. Really generous portions, superbly cooked, mediteranean style - all washed down with great beer and great service amidst a lovely atmosphere. We brought our 8 yo and 12 yo and... More

OK, I'm a regular here and a local, but over the last few years this place has gone through many changes of ownership, with none of them really getting it right. Ben and Chris, the new owners have really nailed it. Excellent beers, good range of wine, bottled beers etc. and a friendly welcoming atmosphere. Chris, the chef produces a... More

Wow!! Really good quality tapas at ridiculously low prices, had a lovely meal, great music and £2.90 per tapas, no I'm not related but am a bit drunk on a very nice Rioja. Get here before the chef realises the food is too cheap

You know when you go somewhere and they just give you brown food!! I was so happy with the balance of healthy & delicious I left feeling happy... The passion of the chief left me speechless.

Thanks for your sentiment, and we're glad you picked-up on Chris' passion. We're sometimes accused of being 'over generous' but reviews like this vindicate our decision to provide fresh, hand-prepared food that'll warm the heart. Please come back again! More
