We were a group of 10 and had a enjoyable dinner and drinks afterwards. Veggie and vegan options. You can bring your pet too! On Friday evenings there is karaoke. The waiters are young and really nice!

Great range of draught ciders and craft beer alongside regular options. Good seating options inside and out. 20 years ago as a student it was my go to pub, so visits today are always a bit nostalgic!
