Food was good but more Chinese than Thai. The meat used was very tender. Pub is very friendly with good rock music.

We booked and ate in restaurant this time as we usually just eat in the bar area. Service was quick and waitress very efficient as usual.

Very good food - Had to wait a long time for service and between first and second course. Décor tired and dated. Restaurant could do with a make over. Uncomfortable and grubby seating.

Young guy singing and playing guitars very well but not everyone seemed to notice. The restaurant is different smarter more touristy and our set meal for 3 including aromatic duck was very good but a... More

It was lunchtime and the three of us were ready for a drink and a bite to eat. We chose a platter of food to share along with our drinks. The bar staff were very friendly and helped us with our selection once we had explained what we wished for, as we eat our main meal in the evenings and... More

As we were waiting so long we... More
