Average service and the food. Lacking in atmosphere, upstairs dining space empty but downstairs full of queues at the bar, not somewhere you’d want to eat.More

Atmosphere was lovely when I went in, all the tables were booked up, £15 for a Caesar salad and a water ! In a nice location and when on business it’s ideal if you want to get out of the holiday inn which is opposite.

Yes, a car park. Leave your reg at the bar. Also very close to Apsley rail station and canal. Nice to cycle too along the canal.
