Lots of different spaces in this bar/restaurant. Try and get one of the warmer more homier spaces than the entry lobby. You order at the bar and it can take a while to be served. Food is nice and has reasonable portions.

Arrived at 6.30 to finish setting up to find diners still waiting for their food to be delivered. Guests arriving had... More

Situated by a canal one block back from the waterfront this is a trendy well run bar/restaurant with very nice food. We enjoyed our eventing so much we came back the following morning for breakfast, where we sat outside on the balcony overlooking the canal. Very nice.

Setting good especially on a nice day. Not a great range of beers and ciders but that may be contractual, forced on them. Wine range good. Good food, but lots of nearby competition is as good - some better. If sunny weather book a table outside.

Lively pub atmosphere. We had the steak on hot stone and were very happy with the food quality. The beef was soft and tasty coming with good chips (fries) and a nice salad. Good avlue for money.

I recently had dinner with friends here but was very disappointed with the quality of the food. It has dropped majorly since I last ate here about 8 mths ago. Both a friend and I had the braised beef belly burger with fries. The fries were delicious but the burger was really disappointing, I think I could make better at... More

Nice place to go and have a drink or to eat, meals vary from the usual bar snack to a full meal. All well presented and tasty. Staff is friendly and know their stuff.
