The bar is next to a hotel (bereford) and serves as the 'lounge' for it. The bar itself is quite simple, nothing special much but suitable for a drink or two,especially if you want one more before returning to your room. The staff was nice, but they also seemed kind of drunk themselves...

We were 6 people and had different meals for diner. Everything was very tasty. One of our favourite is the chicken salad and one burger with garlic fries.

Let's keep this simple: beautiful, genuine service; quaint, ye olde English decor and styling; succinct and inexpensive menu; but most importantly - amazing pub grub. I had the privilege of meeting the chef personally which is typically unheard of, making the dining experience even more enjoyable.

Menu with only tapas and appetizers like burguers and fries. I thought it could be more complex since it is in a hotel.
