Very nice place, we went to eat there almost every evening, ribs are best. Nice food and large choice of beers. Some music would be good though.

The tuna baguette I choose was more of a lettuce baguette, topped with a small amount of tuna then cucumber. It didn't state there was lettuce or cucumber on the baguette in the menu, let alone...

We visited today for lunch and were greeted by many tables for four occupied by a single person drinking pints of beer. Without help we managed to find a free table. There was a menu on the table but we did not see any board advertising the specials of the day although the menu did say to enquire at bar.... More

I am very sorry to hear about your last visit to the counting house. It is becoming apparent that people do tend to sit at larger tables, especially the regulars. However, in light of your response we have dedicated the two raised areas to diners only to try and cater for every need of our customers. Specials do tend to... More

Visited this restaurant on a Tues night so it wasn't super busy. My friend and I both ordered the chicken and rib combo. It didn't take too long to get our food which was good and the food was hot. I have to say that the barbeque sauce they used in this dish was disgusting. I've had a lot of... More
