We have never been disappointed in the food, atmosphere or service at this friendly, casual outdoor patio. The staff was extremely accommodating on our last visit as one of us had special requests due to food sensitivities.

Typical English fare, sheperd's pie, mash & bangers, etc. As in England there is little or no table service. Get your own drinks @ the bar. They do deliver food to your table, however. Recommend.

An old place with lots of history. The food was good and service was slow. People were kind to us. This place was recommended by the locals. It was very busy.

I have always parked on the street. If there is special parking in the back I am not aware of it. Possibly a phone call to them would help you

Very simply tomatoes, cheese, onion, and seasoning in a pie crust. One of those dishes where everyone has a slight variation in the recipe.
