Such nice homely food. Perfect to warm you up on a miserable day during the Autumn/Winger months. Nice cute smoking area out back also, great for a catch up and the staff are friendly. Visited here many times with friends. Quant old fashioned pub.

The feel of the dining area and friendly/happy staff are it's strength in my opinion. Very comfortable spacious establishment with a bit of bohemian vibe. The food was good but nothing very special. The overall experience was fun and relaxing.

Could not recommend highly enough. Had gorgeous fish and chips and sticky chocolate pudding for desert. Would have licked the plate on both! Really enjoyed the wine and great service by Edward. Well done lads!
