Booked a table for 10 in advance and the team were extremely helpful from start to finish. There was a good atmosphere and the food was great too - staff were more than happy to cater to our requirements and make excellent recommendations. Would definitely come again.

Really nice menu and the food was good enough to back It up! Great selection of beers on tap! The only bad thing was that the toilet was in bad condition

David our waiter was great. Lovely welcome , great service. A few hiccups but he sorted everything out swiftly. Squid and patatas bravas yummy, veggie burger not that good. Would highly recommend for that gastronomic pub experience. Kitchen inside the bar on show and great atmosphere.

My partner and I have just completed 'Dry January' for Cancer Research. There was never any debate about where we would break our fast of booze. We travelled up from Wales after work on a Friday, managed to find a cosy table in the corner and had a lovely evening (damn that beer tasted good!) The pair of us had... More

The food actually is ok but a bit overpriced with small portions. We ordered pork pie and scotch eggs, whitebaits and prawns for starters are good taste. The bavette steak (£16)and cod cheeks (£14) is a bit over priced for tough beef and 3 pieces of cheeks. I am quite disappointed for that. The total bill for 3 is £67.38... More

Popped in for lunch and a quick drink. We hadn't booked but as we were early we got a table provided we could be out before the reservation time which wasn't a problem.

We were staying next door in the Staybridge so thought we'd check this out as it was highly recommended. Glad we did as I had the best fish and chips I've ever had. Amazing food and reasonably priced as well. Highly recommend this if you are staying in and around the Vauxhall area very handy and staff were brilliant
