Our hotel clerk recommended this place as "where the locals go". Very casual but great food. I had the great sliders with yam fries which I would gladly have again. Reasonable prices also.

We came across the Brown Lantern when staying at the Majestic Inn opposite and were really pleased that they have a dog friendly patio out the back (accessible from the alley behind the pub). There is one side that's covered and was full of flies...More
