Popped in for a drink. Attractive decor, lights and ambience. Apparently sitting on “bar stools” at the bar is not allowed. Can you believe it? In a pub. We were not amused. Not recommended.More

Had a wonderful dinner here this week. The food was like five star restaurant quality. The brownie was simply amazing! Could have easily had a another one! The staff were lovely and the atmosphere was really nice.
