Wow - what a pub. My family and I ate lunch here on Good Friday and it was one of the nicest meals I have ever had. Absolute top-quality food, beautifully presented, cleverly portioned, but stopping short of being pretentious. Everyone absolutely loved the food here, each course was delicious. I can't recommend this place highly enough and am already... More

We met a group of friends here on a Saturday night after several (failed) attempts to book a table we managed to book one well in advance, it was worth the wait and will definitely be back. A good choice of Gins and the food absolutely delicious and interesting. Staff very attentive without being too interrupting. Couldn't fault it and... More

We visited for the first time for my 30th Birthday lunch, we ordered off the a la carte menu and it was superb, quite easily the best meal I have ever had. The waitress was lovely, she remembered my 2 year old daughters name and kept checking in with her, talking directly at her, which was so lovely. We wanted... More

This is more of a restaurant than a pub but well worth going to if you are in the area. You need to book. The service is excellent, we were well looked after the whole evening. Great food well presented and cooked. Would definitely go back again.

Excellent little spot, cosy restaurant through the bar area, friendly service and an excellent menu. Hard to pick out any issues! The Bouillabaisse that my wife and I both had was excellent and surprisingly filling. My gluten free needs were effortlessly catered for, and we both walked away knowing we will come back. Really enjoyed it, well done
