Had a really nice time, was cosy and the staff were super friendly and the drinks aren't overpriced, would definitely go back again. The food was good value for money and really tasty- great for a girly catch up.

We often go to this pub and restaurant. The food is good whether in the restaurant or the bar area. Excellent staff in the restaurant, very helpful. We were last there mid week early evening so it wasn't busy, food arrived quickly.

Have visited this pub off and on over the last few years. Recently have found the staff much improved- more of them and very helpful and pleasant. Recommend a visit for a drink or some good pub food (haven't been to the restaurant side).
