Even though the staff were under pressure as a result of a couple large group bookings, they remained cheerful. The food was very good, and reasonably priced. Good selection of Fullers Ales, plus wines and spirits.

Went here a couple of days ago and had the steak which was perfectly cooked (unusual in my experience). Nice outside seating area for the sunny weather. The service was friendly and attentive. Good pint of London Pride.
