Always nice to be greeted upon arrival by name, followed by "Great!" and a warm smile....I quite like being referred to as 'Great' :-) It was busy and a lively atmosphere - on a stiflingly hot night, we sat next to the large wide open...More

Fantastic place to spend an evening. The food was amazing especially the deserts and excellent service. Wouldn't think it was a pub it was like eating in a very posh restaurant. Definitely recommend a visit.

Hi, we do welcome dogs in our lounge area but not in the restaurant. A full menu is available in the lounge area and tables can be requested to be booked (which is advisable at busy times)

Yes they do cater for Veggies, As for booking we went at lunch time, I would think during the week you would not need to book but weekends I would book in advance, but to avoid disappointment book anyway. Hope this helps
