Having arrived at the The Lion to find it was the Christmas party meant an impromptu alternative. The recommended Six Bells was closed, as was the William B and hence our arrival here. It deserves a better ranking, as we were greeted by a friendly bar man who we found out was also maitre'd and chef for the night. And... More

Practical, pleasant, good-value and easy place to eat. The staff are funny, welcoming and friendly. They regularly ask if you are enjoying yourself or if everything is fine, to the point where they sometimes make a joke of it! The food is very decent and the value is great. They do one day a week especially for seniors and that... More

Went with family (four of us). Lovely atmosphere. Waited a while for starters and had to ask where it was but then it was fine. Food really tasty, proper pub food. Waiting staff very attentive and friendly. Recommend the salted caramel and chocolate torte! The meal was very reasonably priced.

Food is adequate and the cost is reasonable. Friendly staff though the service was slow. If you are looking for an average price meal then this pub is just the ticket.
