“Good atmosphere with really good food”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I would describe this as a gastro pub, but done to a very good standard. There were 5 of us and everyone was very happy with their food, except for one desert which had obviously been left on the side too long and was a bit cold. However that was a minor blip and everyone else really enjoyed their meals. My main was the tuna steak, which was the special of the day, and I thought was perfectly cooked. The waitress was very friendly and efficient, and this combined with the food makes this a good place to eat. An added bonus was that it was not over the top expensive.

“A great informal restaurant but not a pub”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

A very friendly and casual restaurant. Modern, smart fit out of historic pub building. Quality rather than quantity in all the food, elegantly served. Great quality meats. Very sociable dining options inc. platters, sharing plates etc. Expensive for a pub, but worth it for a special treat.

Staff very friendly good service even through always seems busy, very popular place, bit noisey
As a Big man found that portions not very large and menu didnt change much(limited choices) overall found the food good if expensive for what was presented.
Enjoyed the atmosphere and liked drinks by the fire a enjoyable evening was enjoyed
