Lovely atmosphere, busy and the two male members of staff we saw were helpful and friendly. We had already eaten elsewhere earlier on, but the food we saw being served looked and smelled lovely. Will definitely stop for lunch next time we are in Bath.

If you fancy some honest pub food that's great value then eat here. It's right in the middle of the High Street, so very convenient, the staff are very friendly and it has and olde worlde feel to the place, so nothing too pretentious.

Found Sam Wellers and enticed inside by a local having a cigarette outside. Ordered a bottle of Shiraz and two steaks for myself and my friend, and it arrived quickly, well cooked and tasty.

Small pub with not much seating space but a busy atmosphere, drinks seemed expensive as did the food but it is central. Beer quality OK but have had much better.
