My family (me, my husband and our son and daughter) came to eat here some time before Christmas after a friend recommended it to me. I was a bit unsure, as I won't usually take the family out to eat in a pub, but was pleasantly surprised as soon as we arrived.
As soon as you step inside, you realise this bar/restaurant is just that. It's a bar and a restaurant, that both happen to be in the same building. And a lovely building it is too.
We were seated at a nice little table shorty after arriving, and treated wonderfully all evening. The food itself was excellent, with a good variety and fairly reasonable prices. I ordered the pork belly to start and a shoulder of lamb for the main, while Mike had duck breast and the kids had burgers.
There was a bit of a wait, but when it arrived the food was delicious. The pork belly was beautifully cooked, as was the lamb, and the duck and burgers were juicy and delicious by all accounts.
Overall a good night, and great quality food for the price, but I've rated only 4 stars instead of five because its nature as a pub may not be suitable for families with younger children.
