Booked the upstairs room and had a fantastic birthday celebration. The place has character and charm. Our guests were delighted. Leigh and his team worked hard and were great. The food and drink were fine. Communications between M&B/venue/client could perhaps be improved, but at the...More

Went here for a colleague's leaving drinks two weeks ago. The interior of the pub is quite nice, open and airy. We got some bar snacks: Scotch Eggs, French Fries and Pork Scratchings which were all delicious. However, the bar staff were obnoxious. There were...More
