Nice place but food was average

Normally food here is excellent. Chef might have been having a bad night as food not as good a standard as I've previously experienced there. Has a nice atmosphere to it and staff are pleasant.

Went on a Sunday and everything was half price even the drinks! 2 main meals and 2 drinks (which I had a pint) came to roughly £15 which is great value for money! Food was like really good pub grub, all fresh and large portions! Would consider going again :)

Popped in last month for a bite to eat and cocktails. Had home cooked pizza which was beautiful, although a little big for me! Over the years ive sampled a fair few cocktails here and they are always delicious. The staff were happy, polite and helpful. They even accept student discount! Very reasonably priced. Will recommend and return soon.

We went on a Thursday evening for a meal, looking to use the 'Ladies Night' deal. We were pleasantly surprised by the 50% off for students deal, and chose to do this instead, as the menu was more varied. The food was gorgeous, with very good-sized portions. I had a seafood tagliatelle, which was absolutely lovely - and I couldn't... More

I visited this restaurant/pub with my family and thought it looked lovely. My cousin has lived in the vicinity for some while but thought that it would be a great place to visit when all her family were together. We were a group of five, from many places around the globe. To be honest, it was all a bit bizarre.... More
