The pub was busy even at 2.30pm for lunch. The waitress was very sweet but seemed to need more training - no menus until we asked, approx 45 minutes wait with no communication - she did apologise when pushed, and had to get own cruet!...More

I stopped by for Sunday lunch. They said "Roast only today", but when I sat down, they added: "but it may be possible to serve you something else". I had lamb shank, which was perfect.

If you’re looking for a good Full English on George St, this is the place. Small (£4.95!) or double up at just £7.95. Bargain. Lunch and evening meals are great too and all reasonably priced. Staff are always friendly. What’s not to love.

Great pub and lovely food, pub has loads of character. Staff brilliant, even went to the trouble of going out to buy a dairy free ice lolly for my son with allergies as he couldn’t have the ice cream they had. Superb!
