Not too bad for brunch. Overcharged. Slow service.

Visited with friends. The service was a bit hit and miss. There were 6 of us and we all arrived at slightly different times. Took quite a while to order but it was busy. The breakfast was ok but the quality of the food isn't amazing. Ingredients are probably bought from Aldi and you could get just... read more

Visited here for lunch, staff were very friendly. Had the pulled pork bap with fries it was packed with meat and very tasty. Sat out in the sun which makes a pleasant change! Very nice lunch we will go again

Went here on Saturday with friends who eat here regularly and really enjoyed it. The food was piping hot and delicious. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. It's a quirky little place with lots of charm and bags of atmosphere. Will definitely be returning.

Went in for lunch last weekend as it's always busy outside and wanted to see what the fuss was about, unfortunately it did not live up to expectations. Firstly, the staff were unresponsive and not personable, and made us feel extremely uncomfortable when sat in the restaurant at the back. Not one smile either. The young girls seemed completely out... More

We popped in for lunch last Sunday. Staff seemed liked zombies! I asked if they had any gluten-free option and was met with an abrupt "no"! Drinks watered down with excessive ice without being asked. When meals arrived, average quality - mine was smoked fish salad, salad limp and tired, 1 tomato! There was no "enjoy your meal" no "... More

I have visited this place on many occasions. I must say that I have never had a bad meal eating at this place. The food is always delicious and the service in my opinion is very good. I usually dine here at least once a month. I like the atmosphere of the place and the interior is small and compact.... More

this was my second visit to this pub / restaurant having been once before quite a few years ago. Soup was very tasty with some lovely warm ciabatta bread. Staff pleasant and reasonably good value for money. Big downfall is the loos. Don't visit them. Need a good refurb. Shame.

Went in for lunch. My friend had the Sunday roast which was tasty. I had the Cajun salad - lots of flavour and very fresh. The bill was good value at under £25 with drinks. The staff were friendly too. Will definitely come back again.
