Love visiting here,nice and handy from the train station and always a decent crowd of drinkers/diners. We were here for drinks and the bar service was very good,some of our party had food and they stated that it was very good and sensibly priced.
Best Sunday lunch I’ve had in a long time. Amazing food in a historic and impressive building.
Chris & his team were welcoming and friendly from the minute we walked up to the building. Definitely worth the trip and I’ll be going back!

Did not have a meal here, just a drink but enjoyed the architecture and atmosphere of this place.We were staying at the adjacent Indigo hotel and had meals at the Marco Pierre White restaurant in our package. Another time we will try here.
Fantastic food, beef tasty & cooked perfectly, love the chicken parfait & home made piccalilli & the soft jazz creates a wonderful relaxing atmoshphere. Service as always impeccable. Definatly reccomend this venue for Sunday lunch 10/10.
