Last time we visited was July 15 and it was a lovely pub. This time, the staff had absolutely no idea about customer service, the barman Tom just grunted at me. The other staff were just as bad with no idea how to serve people....More

Your telephone number doesn't seem to work - it goes through to a residential property. How do I speak to someone to book a large table? Thanks
