Happy staff, good prices and already got there Halloween decorations up. Commitment! Popped in for a drink on way back to our hotel after a disappointing meal out somewhere else. Would recommend it’s a lovely quiet and COVID secure venue in the heart of Barnsley.

Went for tea with my husband- scampi not available but staff recommended the fish. Might never order scampi again - the fish was brilliant and I was gobsmacked to realise the ‘chef’ was a member of staff who usually serves the drinks!!! The usual chef...not in work. All I have to say is she did a great job. Had fish when the chef did it she did it better. Thank you chef - apologies for not knowing your name but you will know who you are.More
