Large meals, served quickly. We ate here for the 3 evening meals of our stay. Cannot believe how quickly staff prepare such great meals. My favourite is the lambs fry and veg, my wife went back for the chicken and bacon salad.

Very interesting to learn that the stair case there is from the same place that made the stair case for the Titanic, and also the same type of wood that titanic used. In fact it's potentially the same patch. Anyway reasonable pub food, reasonable price....More
