The food was flavoursome and vegetables perfectly cooked. Sardines, duck pate, soup, lamb shank were all highly recommend ed. Staff were lovely. But be sure to walk ten miles before you eat !,

Just been for some food after running all day. The staff managed to squeeze a party of 9 in at the last minute and were very attentive. Nothing too much trouble and food was delicious and very quick. Will definitely recommend to friends and call back in next time we are in the area.

In April 2016 we had a meal at The Milbank Arms. It is a lovely pub with friendly staff and good pub food at a reasonable price.
