Liked the look of the menu from the street and luckily we got a table, they had a 5-10-5 menu on during the week. £5 for starter and dessert, £10 for main. After the chowder starter and our mains washed down with a large bottle...More

Went with my daughter, son in law and six year old triplets. Ate on the second floor. The adults all tried the goat since it was unusual and had great reviews. It definitely lived up to its reputation. Highly recommend this dish. Best dinner we...More

First time visiting having been thwarted on numerous occasions by unreliable babysitters. Given how good this place is, said babysitters are all dead to me now! Nothing pretentious, nothing that isn't local and nothing that isn't done incredibly well; be it the stout and wheaten...More

No. It is a question for the establishment. My general view is the small restaurants have logistical problems with large numbers.
