Had a meal on Saturday evening. Nice atmosphere not too busy. Food was good but not as good as the Richard the third. Better ambience though and definitely worth a visit.

My wife and I ate here last Saturday on a spur of the moment decision as we'd spent all day walking and wanted a hassle free dinner. We walked in and were greeted by friendly staff and seated promptly in the restaurant area. We both ordered hearty pub favourites of steak and ale pie and fish and chips!! Both were... More

We came here for a bite to eat, because we were staying at Richard III and fancied eating elsewhere. The pub part was full, so we sat in the adjoining restaurant area, but it was very quiet and lacked atmosphere. I found the food to be a bit pricey because we weren't hugely hungry, so I ordered the burger. It... More

The rooms were very nice, ours had a nice view of the square...lovely watching the race horses on Sunday morning going for their training. Evening meal... More

We were reccommended to try this restaurant after a couple of mediocre experiences in another local pub. We had looked at it from the outside but were unsure. However it just goes to show that you shouldn't judge a place without going inside! We went on a Sunday night with our friends and thoroughly enjoyed it; the restaurant was clean... More
