Second visit

Just as good as first time. Food good, service excellent atmosphere good. Lots of sport if you like watching it, but not too loud if you don't.

Came to dinner with my main pal ashleigh for steak egg & chips & cider. It was so delicious, we really enjoyed it! We had a very attentive waitress, Hannah, with our table who kept us topped up with drinks and anything we needed. We will be back soon.

Another nice lunch at Crowded House. Crowdy is a great place to visit for a nice meal or just have a few drinks as we do often. Thanks for the great service Luke and the team.
