We had been meaning to go here for ages after seeing good reviews and managed to fit in lunch between the Sea City Museum and Tudor House both highly recommended.
Opened the door, immediately greeted with 'Hello' by the two people behind the bar and found a nice little table by the fire. Nice surroundings and interesting choice of snacks. First problem no draught beers so not wishing to rip my friend off by having a pint of Peroni via bottles at £6.82 I decided to slum it with some bitter, Hampshire Rose, which thank goodness was served cold so tasted not to bad to my lager lout's taste buds.
For food we shared some awesome pork scratchings with apple sauce (the menu described them as pork scratchings which is doing themselves down), and some olives and pickles plus some free almonds, very nice, and nicely served.
For 'mains' two of us had the charcuterie and the other two had quiches of different flavours, all plates cleaned and conclusion = yummy. My only complaint is that they could have been a little more generous with the four different cuts of meat.
It wasn't cheap (about £16 each) but worth it and would definitely recommend it, I think it would be superb for afternoon tea.
So overall very good, nice chap who served us, pleasant and informative.
Really good experience, go try!
