I go here for lunch occasionally to meet a friend and they always do a very good baguette and pint. The baguette is well filled, fresh and very tasty. Beer is always good

We celebrated my wife's birthday with 40 friends with a Spanish theme. Tony could not have been more helpful. He decorated the pub with Spanish flags, put on great Tapas and cooked a proper Paella. Two years ago when I had my birthday bash (this...More
