Popped in for a quick lunch yesterday, I was on a break from work so was time conscious but Jaye was very happy to speed up my order. Had a classic fish finger sandwich which was crispy and very tasty. Will be back

Bistro pub style restaurant. Food was good quality, well prepared. Service was good and prompt. Went on a Saturday, so it was a little busy and noisy. The tables are quite close together, so not ideal for a quiet meal but still enjoyable.

I find your review extremely flawed and contradictory. If you dine in ‘more sophisticated’ venues and we are just a ‘pub’ – (which incidentally has been featured in the Michelin Guide, won many awards including the Great British Pub Guide amongst others), then I am...More

This good-looking, poshed-up pub and dining room was virtually empty on a weekday evening, and it gradually became clear why. We’d booked but they’d no record of it, so it was lucky so few tables were taken. The menu makes the heart sink by pretentiously...More
