“unexpected find, wish we'd found it first not last”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Found this place on the last night we were there; if we'd found it earlier we'd have eaten there every night. Food was unexpectedly good, reasonably priced, quick service and free of loud noisy people. The only thing missing was a dessert menu - pre made slices of cake were available, but not the same thing as being able to order from a selection of desires. We'll be back….

“Pot n parmy”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

For a fair pub meal you are welcome here. Don't think of it as restaurant quality. We were with four and had a pot n parmy, steak, Caesar salads and a children's menu. All okay portions. There was a veggie and salad bar. Salads were okay, but the veggies were a bit dried out as lady under those heating lamps....probably too long.

“Good pub food”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

Good honest pub food. Got the garlic bread going off recommendations on tripadvisor, wife thought it was great but really, how good can garlic bread be??

Wife had flake with veges and chips (?!) and I had the twice cooked pork belly. Both meals were of generous proportions (not huge like some other reviews) and of a good quality.

All meals are reasonably priced and service sharp and attentive. Plenty of space in the bistro, although we were there on a Thursday night.
