Shepard's Pie and Fish & Chips were great, and the prices were reasonable. The service was acceptable, but not totally welcoming. Four stars for the food, prices, and convenience of location.

We had the skillet chips, shepard's pie, and the corned beef and potato dumplings. All were quite yummy. The decor made me think for just a little while that I was in Bilbo Baggin's house. Would definitely eat here again.
