Spur of the moment lunch date , looked nice and really well done inside , decent food as you would expect from a chef and brewer , they also do koppaberg raspberry on draught which is a big plus! Was quite quiet but service was prompt and staff were welcoming.

Decent pub fare, but nothing special. Halloumi and chips is yummy. Good for kids. Nice big beer garden.

Really good place for basic pub food, no frills, but freshly cooked and well presented. The atmosphere was convivial and the staff were helpful without being intrusive.

This venue needs better management ! Could not fault the waiting staff, but management were very blunt ! Took twenty mins to pay our bill, this should not have taken this long ! We were even asked where we were sitting ! Just not good enough for a chain this size, will not visit again
