It seems that for once me and my partner are the unlucky ones. However, I do not consider waiting 50 minutes for a bar snack (roast beef and cheese baguette) to be unlucky. Upon arrival to the restruant (our first visit) we were pleasantly surprised by both decor and atmosphere. A good selection of drinks and initial good service we... More

A slightly strange but acceptable Antipasti pretabled (new word) a nicely presented, satisfying and delicious Roast Beef with all the usuals. Tradition with enough of a twist to be distinctive but not so much to distract from the inviting surroundings and convivial staff. Our doggies were welcome in the bar and sat at our feet on the stone floor whilst... More

My second visit here as I have just returned my daughter to University again! I have not been able to sample the vast selection of beers due to being the designated driver. However the lunch time food menu is great, I was spoilt for choice, and very good value for money. Service easy and relaxed and although it has been... More

Was taken here for lunch recently by my 93 year old mother. I ordered the fish and chips with mushy peas and was really impressed with the quality of the meal. The fish was fresh and flaky, the hand cut chips perfectly cooked and the mushy peas were just right. Mum had liver and bacon with mustard mash and she... More

Popped in here after a nice walk. Dogs were very welcome. Friendly atmosphere, very relaxed. Had a really lovelly (and I mean lovelly) burger followed by a really nice crumble. Price was very reasonable. Will definitely visit next time in the vicinity.
