Excellent service, good food and child friendly. We visited on a Saturday lunch time; whilst the restaurant was busy the staff found space for my wife and I along with a 3 year old and a baby in a pram.

The pub was absolutely rammed but we still found a delightfully quiet corner to drink and eat. Fearing a long wait, we still ordered as the food smelled wonderful. It arrived so much more quickly than anyone could have foreseen, given how busy the pub was. The bar staff were a joy, very quick to serve, fair and even remembered... More

If you are looking for a friendly pub with a good selection of food and drinks then this is the place to go. Even though it was very busy on the two occasions we visited the service was quick and professional and the food excellent.

We booked a table for 2.45 on a Sunday afternoon. At the point of booking, I wasn't told there may be a wait for the table, so we all turned up a little early to make sure we could sit down on time. There were 10 of us, including 2 children and a dog. So you can imagine our annoyance... More

After a quick look on the trip advisor app this place seemed like a good place to stop for lunch, and we were right! The clincher was whether they allow dogs.... and they do, in the bar area. 4 x burger and drink deals - my friend on ordering worked his charm and managed to swap the cold drinks for... More

Been here several times now and each time been pleasantly surprised by enthusiastic and cheerful staff, prompt service and pretty good food. Not 'fine' dining but reliably good pub food with an adventurous twist and good value. I would recommend it. Moules Mercredi lived up to its expectations but truth be known the focaccia was disappointing - a true crusty... More
