“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a great meal here with my family. My daughter and I had the steak and ale pie which we both agreed was excellent and well presented. The atmosphere was nice and welcoming.
The restaurant was fully booked on a Thursday night so would advise booking a table

We had the Homemade steak & ale pie which was recommended and it was delicious. Served with fresh vegetables and either " Proper Chips " or creamy Mash !

Delightful surroundings and very pleasant staff.

I'll be back !

“Lovely evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Just managed to squeeze a table in for this restaurant - a year ago it was a quiet place but now it's very popular and rightly so! Really friendly service, great vibe and fantastic meal (pork belly and fillet steak) for four of us. My favourite beer on tap (black sheep) although I ventured out by trying the excellent Yorkshire terrier. A great pub, great food and wish it was still an unknown destination!

“Great sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Managed to book a table at short notice. Glad we did as really busy. The food was excellent, really well cooked and presented. Waiting staff were efficient and attentive.
Good range of food on the menu and reasonably priced. What more could we ask for ?

“excellent food service and surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

The food here is incredible the fillet steak is fantastic cooked to perfection the presentation is a little different with chips served in a metal cone with grease proof paper made to look like newspaper my husband had battered haddock and chips which was huge and my bother and sister in law had sirloin steak which was also excellent and very large as well . The staff are helpful and cheerful and the surroundings are very calming and relaxed. Give it a go you wont regret it.
