Service has always been good. Food can be a bit hit and miss. Plenty of outside seating area when weather is good. Dogs welcomed. The curry is ok ("British curry") and reasonably priced. Good selection of beers on tap. The fish and chips is huge!

Popped in here several times and love the chilled out, cosy atmosphere here. Our little dog was also made to feel really welcome which was lovely . Can't wait to visit this place again when we return in March.

Last time I came here, I just came for a quick pint which was nice. This time, I came here for a bite to eat and what I got was surprising! The food was lacking in flavour and was quite tough.

A good place to grab a snack, or evening meal. The menu is varied and would appeal to all tastes. I would recommend the fish and chips- I have never tasted such fresh fish so beautifully prepared. The selection of drinks is good- try the...More
