Once again an amazing meal. Great friendly low key service in an relaxed cosy pub. Called in advance and the Chef cooked us Lobster Thermidor, even though it was not on the menu. Never had a bad meal here - highly recommend.

Sorry to say that our meals were at best average. Microwaved pastry on the pie, limp french fries and not well presented. Service was fine but it does seem that it matters who is doing the cooking on a particular day. Don't like being critical...More

The restaurant is not too noisy. Holds about 30 to 40 max. There should not be too much commotion but call ahead to find out how busy it would on the day you would be going out for your meal. Hope this will help.
