We were a large group out celebrating a 40th birthday. We had drinks and food and enjoyed the lively atmosphere which was impressive considering it was a very cold Saturday night in January. The staff were friendly. Mostly the food came out quickly without problems which was impressive given it was pub food rather than a sit down restaurant and... More

Visited the Knott on a saturday evening well worth the walk. Had a varied selection of both craft and draft beers on offer. My Oakham Green Devil ipa was top notch, my wife's Trappist porter was the same. The staff were friendly and generous with giving samples of the beer. Although we did not at the food looked very good.... More

Serving a variety of real ale with pretty good food - I am told - is proving to be a hit. Often packed at weekends - standing room only - when it is quiet (midweek), it is a lovely place to chill out with a newpaper. Well-recommended.

Had the lamb burger with goats cheese, the missus had the steak and mushroom pie, both were excellent, you will not leave hungry. The beer is worth a look at with an interesting collection on offer
