The pub upstairs is very good, wide selection of good beers and whiskeys, warm athmosphere.
The restaurant downstair in my opinion is a little posh for what it is. First thing the beer is bad, you cannot have the beer from the pub upstairs which has the good ones, if you want it you have to go out, enter the pub, buy it, and bring it to your table downstairs.
The startes were a bit small in portion, good food but small for the cost. I had the fishcake which was extremely hot inside, and had no taste by itself so I had to use some sauce to give it some taste.
The bathrooms are outside the restaurant, outside was cold and snowing so you risk to get ill everytime you need to go to the toilets (both gents and ladies).
I like much more the pub upstairs, the restaurant I think it's overvestimated and a bit expensive.

Thank you for your review, I am sorry you didn’t fully enjoy your experience, but have concerns with your review.
Feedback is vital to how we run our business, without it we cannot move our business forward. I am sorry you found our fishcakes to hot, however it is our policy to ensure that our food is cooked correctly, and we provide a sauce as part of the meal to enhance the flavours of the fishcakes.
I would also like to assure you that our rest rooms are not outside, and that we have the same beers in the restaurant as we do in the bar, they come from exactly the same cellar and even the same kegs & casks.
I also feel that we are very reasonably priced, all our dishes are cooked to order prepared in house and offer a substantial meal.
