We only stopped in here for a couple of pints while we were staying in Whitchurch, the bar was traditionally cosy and a great place to stop for a drink, but the home made nachos were worthy of a review on their own. Amazing crumbly flaky delicious hand made tortilla chips and perfectly generous and proportioned toppings, we almost considered... More

Great beer, good staff and interesting building. Extensive menu and food looked good although we didn't eat. Just wonder if it turns into a bit of a holiday camp club house in high season BUT would still visit.

Only vegetarian main was a mushroom ravioli type thing in a tomato based sauce. It was not good. The flavors didn't go together at all. I regret being nice and paying for it rather than sending it back. Tho no one asked how we liked our mains either. If it had been good, it still would have been over priced.... More

The sat us in the dinning room which had a welcoming coal fire and a lot of Christmas atmosphere. We were the only people using the room which made it like a... More

we stayed here a few weeks ago. loved the historical feel of the place (wonky floors, low ceilings etc and it was in a very convenient location for us to travel around. we were thrilled with the delicious afternoon snack of home made nachos - absolutely delicious. however, were very dissapointed later that evening with the 'hunters chicken', this is...
