We went for an early evening meal. The menu was standard Pub Grub. I chose Sirloin Steak (rare) and my wife. Scampi. Both portions were plentiful without being outrageous. The steak was perfectly cooked and I'm told that the Scampi was delicious. Excellent service from the very friendly staff. Although living locally, I hadn't been in for a while. I'll... More

The meal was good but not great. The roast beef was over cooked and dry for my taste. The green vegetables were sparse and there were too many potatoes although they were well cooked. The service was very good and the atmosphere was good. The 2 course lunch did not include a sweet option although it included a starter.

Visited for lunch and was really disappointed. The service was pleasant but the food was very poor. We both ordered baked potatoes which should be really easy to get right.

Popped in here for lunch. Had a nice burger with sweet potato fries and other half had the chicken fajitas which was huge build your own style. Service was polite and efficient and the place was clean and inviting.

Food was good but the offers are very limited in my opinion. We enjoyed what we had and the atmosphere is lovely, very comfortable. The staff are helpful and cheery which would encourage a return visit. Just need bit more choice on the menu.

This is the type on bar restaurant that is very busy on weekends as the bar and restaurant are only separated by a few stairs going up one level, on the afternoon we visited the bar was not to busy and the noise level was okay but I can imagine that on days or evenings when they are very busy...

Went to a family gathering on Saturday , must have been about 40-50 people, the food and staff were exceptional . So many steaks ordered and all cooked to perfection . I can't recommend this place enough. The staff were amazing and so is the chef
