Visited early evening without a booking. Has a Spartan medieval feel to it downstairs. Delicious food flavours! Friendly staff! They need to think about having kids' option and child size portions available.

We stopped here for breakfast. My bacon and sausage bun was really tasty and I had a huge mug of tea. Plus complimentary bottled water. Would definitely recommend a visit.

When ordering we were warned about a 20 minute delay for coffee. What wasn't mentioned was that we'd still be waiting for food 40 minute later, our drinks long finished. Eventually the food arrived, with apologies and a promise to remove the drinks from our...More
