Went for a work dinner - regret it and won't be going back. Mains took over a 1.5 hours to arrive on a quiet midweek early evening after substandard starters. Each main was cold, dry, lacking in flavour and generosity and completely lacking in care....More

The worst pub meal I have ever had. After waiting for 1/2 hour for our meal I was presented with a rubbery piece of veal schnitzel, a tasteless coleslaw and the worst chips ever!! I will never go back. Even my drink lacked enough bitters!!

Dinner with family, our main meals were small so make sure you order an entree or a side. Nice place to visit.

Walked into a space buzzing with positive energy & attentive staff. Not a surprise that you'd need to reserve a table at this popular venue. I had a delicious, perfectly cooked porterhouse. My partner had the Guinness Pie. We shared a side of cauliflower and...More
