Came here for lunch on a quiet Saturday, was not too busy but we felt the kitchen must have been stretched! My friend had the nachos which she did not finish, the salsa and guacamole seemed like old El Paso! My gammon was watery and chewy, needless to say I could not finish it! Sadly would not return.

My daughter and I popped in last Monday for lunch and were totally impressed. The gentleman who greeted us was very friendly and helpful and gave us a choice of seats. The restaurant was fairly busy but we were waited upon quickly and we ordered two fabulous lunches - freshly prepared and generous portions. Good value for money and loads... More

Sorry 'The Bank', we arrived early but large orders elsewhere made our mere table for two, poor relations. Not cheap, ok food and service, poor Irish coffee (we cancelled order in the end). All in all, I'll take our £82.00 elsewhere next time.

Excellent lunch from varied menu and well presented. The service was very good and the staff cheerful and attentive. Diners cannot help noticing the 400 year old ceiling - absolutely amazing! Will certainly be returning.

Booked for a Saturday evening and the place was very busy including large party tables. This made for erratic service due to their large orders. The Menu was fairly extensive and ranged from home made burgers to game casserole as well as various sea food options . Starters were in the £6 to £7 region and Mains from £10 to... More
