We ordered the smaller portions, but there was still a great amount of food. The food was nice, quality pub food and... read more

For us, the service in the restaurant was exceptional. My daughter really enjoyed her food and the waitress was just great. Good beer on tap, good food sent up. Quiet, easy, good.

It was served with chips and when I went to put vinegar in the chips from one of the sachets the vinegar seemed to be... More

A group of us went into the bar in the evening and asked if food was sold in the bar; we were told yes, but we would probably be better to go upstairs to the lounge. This was unfortunate, since there was no-one else upstairs! The menu offers a good choice of food, although there is nothing particularly inventive. Service... More
