If you can't find a beer you like in here, you might as well stay at home.

Fabulous ale selection, with something for every palate. This beer is clearly looked after by people who know what they are doing.

Staff are smiley, pleasant and 'easy on the eye'.

In the words of Arnie..... I'll be back.

I went for lunch with a friend and this was our second visit. The place itself is quite unique and if you like beer it has a good selection. However we stuck to wine which was good and quite well priced. The one dissapointment was the food we both had the steak pie one of which appeared to have a lot of meat in the other unfortunately had very little. The chips however were the worst I have ever tasted, in fact I would not call them chips - more like overdone large potato wedges (skin on!). This always worries me as I wonder how well scrubbed the potatoes are considering all the pesticides that are used nowadays.

My final comment is that the young staf who were behind the bar ans serving the food are delightful,

I was looking forward to my meal here having studied the menu on the last couple of visits without eating and seeing the plates of food being delivered to fellow customers but I was disappointed with what I ordered. I went for the boiled bacon and pigs trotter but had to ask where the pigs trotter was. It turned out it was the scraps of meat on the plate which were hardly noticeable when I was expecting an actual pigs trotter. I think the menu should be clearer on what the dish actually is to avoid disappointment.
I ordered a side dish of cauliflower cheese which was very watery. And also the boiled bacon was quite salty. All in all the meal didn't live up to my expectations. My husband had the meat pie which he said was nothing special just a stew with a pastry lid.

Loved this restaurant. Great food from a menu that included some unusual choices. Selections that my 'in laws' reconized were popular in the UK just after the Second World War.
Good choice of real ales....lovely building with loads of character...friendly staff and all at a reasonable price.What more could you ask for !!!!!!!
