Superb lunch for my partner's 70th birthday celebration. Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent selection of lunches and first rate quality. This is a great pub to visit. Current tenants have transformed it. Don't pay any attention to old reviews.

We couldn't believe how quiet this place was on a Saturday night. The restaurant was almost empty, we couldn't figure out why. The staff were attentive, the food was excellent and there was a good choice on the menu and specials board.
