My visit to the Old Grammar School was nothing less than splendid. I wouldn't just call it a school, I'd call it a University; an extremely enjoyable higher education for my tastebuds. I arrived at this delightfully quaint little venue at approximately 14 minutes past 6 on a cold Friday evening. Although my body was cold, my heart was soon... More

Called in there for lunch on the 29th. There were 4 of us, 1 had mac & cheese beef brisket, 1 had the burger, and the other 2 had pulled pork. All of agreed that they were all well cooked and the service was good. Really nice place to eat.

Have been here a few times over the past 6 months. The waiting staff are friendly, polite, knowledgeable and helpful. The food is good. This time I went for bangers and mash, a new addition to the menu. I was asked for feedback on the dish- which I gave. For me the 3 cumberland sized sausages were just too much... More

As evening turns in to night it changes to a fairly upmarket bar. Good drinks and fresh cocktails avaliable at a price. The atmosphere is very chilled-... More
