Came here for a drink then food. Can't say the staff were the friendliest to start with but warmed up when we got seated for food. Quite pricy if you have a big family, but the food was very tasty and I would most probably go back. Quirky little place. Not easy to find the restaurant door! In behind the... More

We went for food on Sunday lunch time. Got told it would be 15 minutes for a table. 45 minutes later I asked how much longer, she said another hour and 15! Apparently bookings over the phone take priority over bookings in person. Generally nice place though. Atmosphere was good. Rustic style place. Will go back again but with a... More

What a visit!! Totally out of the ordinary! We didn't stop for food, but enjoyed a drink in the bar instead. Lovely beer selection and the characteristics of this little pub is worth the visit in itself. Was recommended to dine here so will be booking as soon as possible! Just lovely.

Just stayed for drinks in this different establishment, quirky, good change of scenery, bit of a pain to get to and needs better signage but good to see. Moderate prices, good welcoming atmosphere

Surprised to be the only customers on a Friday lunchtime. Checked to see if food was availability, it was. Staff very attentive as you would expect being all alone. No Banks bitter available in a Marston's house. The crab and avocado salad for starters but where was the crab and avocado? Pulled pork rolls with chips and garnish acceptable but... More

Considering the history and quirkiness of the building and the fact you have to travel to get to it you'd think they'd go overboard to be welcoming and friendly. Theres no doubt the building alone is worth visiting but the service and whole experience could be so much better, plastic cups if you're drinking outside just doesn't cut it and... More

Bar staff are very unwelcoming & borderline rude. Had absolute no conversation/customer service skills!

We visited for the experience of being at this renowned location. The building definitely give the wow factor on first glance but nothing could prepare you for walking inside. It's just an amazing optical illusional experience. After overcoming trying to order lunch and drinks from some very challenging staff we settled down in front of a lovely open fire. The... More

Friendly staff and unusual building but the food was disappointing. I would visit again but I wouldn't recommend eating there.
