We were welcomed and seated by a very polite guy and then introduced to our waitress. We settled in a table and browsed the menu. The place was pretty empty. The waitress came back with our drinks (spilling some on our son) and quickly vanished again. We had chosen and waited and waited and waited. After around 20 minutes another... More

Visited today with family. Met by a lovely host and shown to our table. Service was excellent and we didn't have to even go to the bar.

I came for a family lunch with my mother-in-law and kids. The over all appearance of the pub was nice, ashame I couldn't say that about the service.
