Old cellar with a bar, live music in the evening. Interesting range or beers, quaint, individual and interesting, will visit again.

I had dinner with my son and daughter the first night of my visit - definitely coming back before the end of my stay! The food was delicious, the ambience very pleasant, and staff very friendly. And because it happened to be a Tuesday, we were able to take advantage of their special.

Stopped for lunch, the menu is extensive and a fair price. The ambience is very nice and the service was very good. If you are having lunch have the smaller portion as it is quite enough just for a lunch.

We wanted to have lunch and to be able to enjoy it in peace and quiet. We tried several other places but they were all playing music, so we retraced our steps and went here. I had two pints one was excellent and the other was very average. The food was a bit dull too. The best thing was that although there was music inside there was a decent sized seating area outside and we could enjoy the pleasant weather and watch the world go by. This is a place that sets out to be somewhere a bit special and falls some way short

Five of us enjoyed a birthday celebration with very good food, excellent service and at a very reasonable price. What more is there to say?
