Pros: WONDERFUL FOOD! Cons: REALLY FATTENING FOOD! Pasty was great as well as the Spotted Dick. The employees were very friendly and quick. Their beer selection was good and I was impressed with their mini grocery store there! I highly recommend and will go again!

We really enjoyed the fish and chips - freshly prepared with great malt vinegar. Bangers and mash and sticky toffee pudding were as good as any we get in London, and we go there a lot.
