Food was really good, especially the halloumi fries. The pub itself is really nice, fireplace was a nice touch. Always prefer places that seat you rather than asking you to sit where you can though.More

The pub has a lovely atmosphere and good service. However my meal wasn’t very nice. I doubt that the dish had been tasted by the chef. I didn’t complain as I didn’t want to spoil my meal with my friends and it was ok.
