Our first time here was early on a Thursday evening - it's a great place for drinks and/or dinner. We can imagine it's more lively on a Friday or Saturday night, but it was perfect for us. The burger tasted great and we could choose from at least eight guest ales or from the standard beer pumps and optics. Four... More

Came for late lunch. They always have 4 ales on tap, 1 at least seems to constantly rotate. Up to 10 craft beers/ciders. Lovely brains bitter and camden pale ale. Had the tapas plates and swet potatoe fries. All were very good especially the croquettes. Have had dinners before which were decent.

We had our staff do here last night and working in the same industry we know how annoying it can be with a big group that are drunk and rowdy. But Natalie and Ocean were absolutely fabulous, made us umpteen cocktails and they were all delicious! Thank u so much girls you were great and very patient with us 🤗

The first interaction I had with this place was poor. I booked a week in advance using their online service. Pretty basic function for a restaurants website right? Apparently not, I rang them the day before because I'd heard nothing back and they said they had never received my booking as their online service wasn't reliable. This, even though I... More

Been a couple of time since the refurb, had a roast, which was nice, except I think they had run out of spuds for me as mine were a bit Aunt Bessie but hubbies were fine, Tapas are really lovely and tasty, had a steak which is always good and tried the pizza which I found a bit bland but... More
