One of Halstead's best places to go. Friendly staff and a good choice of drinks and food on offer. Visited recently with mates from the running club, great time, never had a bad experience in there!

This was a mid-point meeting place to catch up with family. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was really good, service was attentive and friendly. Cosy and warm on a really cold night, could have stayed for much longer but our time was limited. Will definitely go again.
