I visited with my aunt and girlfriend, the week before Christmas, and we had a very enjoyable meal. As well as the good reviews, the SA connection initially made me book here (as my girlfriend is from Cape Town), and we weren't disappointed. I had a very nice Bobotie, and my fellow diners also enjoyed their choices too. Since I... More

We visited with our daughter and partner, the welcome was excellent and the service could not be faulted. The others had the roast beef, the meat and vegetables were declared superb. I had the fish and chips, the fish was cooked to perfection, which doesn't happen very often, (I was a fishmonger-so know my fish). We highly recommend this inn... More

Sunday lunch in December equates to Roast Turkey. It was superb! The Turkey was moist and full of flavour, potatoes crisp and fluffy, and a good selection and plenty of veggies. I've eaten here many times and have yet to have a bad meal. A nice touch is the Chef who comes to your table to make sure all is... More

Ignore the 4 negative reviews - Make the trip and enjoy! I have been before a couple of years ago and had a very nice meal at the time - Sunday was no exception. I can't believe the negative comments (I always read them first for light entertainment!) My mother had fish and chips and was very impressed. 2 of... More

We went for my husbands birthday as a spur of the moment thing. We had a delicious lunch at an affordable cost. There was another birthday guest who had their pudding before us and a special candle had been arranged. The waitress overheard that it was my husband' s birthday too and arranged the same for him. Much as my... More

This is a local restaurant to us and we have eaten there for many years during various ownerships. The building and its surrounding gardens are exceptional and it always was 'the' place to go for something a little special. The menu is generally not for the feinthearted, but each to his own. My husband is a steak man and he... More

Fantastic, great atmosphere, really friendly people. The food was second to none. Starters, mains and deserts were all excellent, the food was cooked well and the presentation was good. The staff were professional and friendly, overall I don't have a bad word to say, I would highly recommend this pub to anyone, great evening. Thank you very much :)
