No excuse not to have a rich list of quality craft beers in this day and age. Non-starter for me. Didn't try the food. Won't be back.

It's a little pricier than some of the pubs with lunch specials, but the quality of the food and its excellent preparation and presentation shines through. Gorgeous birthday lunch for my husband. Well done, Churchmouse!
