Good menu with a good choice of dishes and a number of specials. The range of beers is good from Fullers and other independent breweries...my only disappointment was not being able to get a Bourbon.

Was lucky enough to visit here with friends and found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming, the decor to be rather lovely and the prices very reasonable. Nice cosy feel, plenty of seating options and all together a great choice.
