Popped in for a drink. Strangest pub I've ever been in. Having said that we lived it. Very dark and narrow bar area. Chandeliers. Limited seating. Back room for diners. Looked great. We will return. Downside...expensive drinks IMO. Friendly barman.

Came here for a meal after it had been recommended to us and we were very disappointed. It is very over priced for what you get. My wife ordered the fish & chips, when it came it was mostly batter and very little white fish,...More

Front bar very small but characterful definitely aiming at people eating there rather than stopping for a drink nevertheless it is worth stopping by for a quick one

I came here with a friend for Sunday lunch after looking at reviews. We both had beef. That was actually the problem. It was as tough as old boots. After paying nearly £30 for two meals you should not have to eat tough beef. The...More
