Ambience, superb. Prices, superb. Service, superb. You get the gist, fantastic place really like walking into your favourite pub and being looked after like an old friend whether it’s your first visit or hundredth. Only our second visit but looking forward to our hundredth.

We went for dinner here a few times. We had the steak, half chicken and chicken Kiev. The nicest dish was definitely the steak.

We have too many people walk away without paying so the system of pay as you go is the best option. At home do you not pay for the drink when you order??
