Great service, great food and good atmosphere. Stumbled across this place as our friends' usual haunts were all booked up - was not disappointed. Reasonably priced with a range of food options. Would not hesitate to recommend for an informal impromptu lunch.

Very pleasant pub and had live music a couple of times a week. The food was well above the average pub fair. The standard menu was average: burgers, baked potatoes, cibattas's etc. But there were a good selection of specials that were much better. It...More

The pub is always lively and has a great atmosphere with a mix of locals and tourists. A lovely view and a good menu with really good pub food, with good presentation and very enerous portion sizes. We really enjoyed afternoon teas and burgers here.
