We have known this establishment throughout several changes of name and ownership.We are always keen to find a really nice place to eat within walking distance of home. There are several tables outside and the large area inside is very welcoming .The menu is on the board and orders are taken at the bar. We had ravioli and pea soup... More

Came here for a Sunday roast and won't return. For a start they didn't have roast beef which should have set alarm bells ringing. I opted for roast lamb instead expecting soft tender lamb. Big mistake. I could hardly get the knife to cut through the tough rubbery meat. Yuk!!!! I have eaten here before and enjoyed my experience so... More

This is a lovely pub with really good food. The beer is excellent and the food delicious. Nice big tables inside and out. There were families there so it's family friendly. If you are in the area give it a go.

A busy Pub like restaurant, with traditional layout. We went as a group for Sunday lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the meal, good service and attentive staff. A lively place to eat and lots of atmosphere.

The De Beauvoir Arms (gastropub) has gone through many changes - and changes of owners- over the years. Formerly named Northgate, it was a dependable local pub and restaurant. Then it had a serious slump. The current owners and staff have got it right. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is warm and relaxed. Absolutely worth a visit.

Very nice corner pub, amazing quality food and wine, very cozy especially in the winter with the fire place. Slightly overpriced.

Have frequented this place since I moved to the area about a year ago. Good location, good selection of beers and great food. Outdoor space is also a plus

Went for lunch and shared some tapas which were lovely and tasty as recommended by the bar staff. Our 2nd visit with friends for dinner was also very good - we... More
