Great decor, superb staff, and excellent food. The steak pies home made are the best you will ever taste. Fairly recent changes to the layout have been a great success. Always worth a visit.

We eat here quite regularly and have yet to be disappointed. The food is excellent and the portions fit for a hearty appetite. If you are hungry this is definitely the place to go. Service is very good and all the staff are friendly. Would recommend the Cornkist without hesitation.
