Oh the delights of a pie, the unctuous combination of a butter shortcrust pastry encasing a cornucopia of slow cooked ingredients in a rich gravy. Yet these days we often are served a brick on a plate or a pie in an enamel dish. Bring back real pies and plates I say such as this fine example at the North... More

Our orders were taken quickly, and when our food arrived, it was nice and hot, plenty of it, and very tasty. As always, very enjoyable, and we will... More

Have eaten here several times but in the last 2 visits (lunch & then dinner) they are clearly suffering from a shortage of staff. On the lunch visit we were almost 3 hours but had time to kill so just waited. However on the latest visit for dinner it took almost an hour to be served our meals, one diner... More
