Definitely need to visit that place if you like traditional old pubs. It’s what I pictured an English Pub to be like. Cozy, nice fireplace, good drinks, wonderful food and very friendly and helpful staff. Originally we entered just for a drink but after the menu was so nicely presented to us there was no chance not to try it.... More

When a family member has dietary requirements - particularly for medical reasons - going out requires a bit more planning. Usually, this is fixed by having a quick look at the menu beforehand to make sure that some options are available but on rare occasions contacting the restaurant fixes any additional problems as most tend to be willing to make...

We went for the tennerfest menu but when we saw the a la carte menu we changed our minds. They have a pie menu and we chose the fish pie and the chicken and leek pie, which were both really tasty. We both had the calamari starter which was really good. We also had a bottle of wine and the... More

Having ordered one starter and three mains for three people the starter came out with two main courses which then left the person who had ordered the starter eating their main course on their own! We questioned the waiter about the starter coming out with mains and he said it was his decision! Sorry but despite the food and beer... More

A great pub grub place that any pup grubber would be happy to eat in. Our meal was fine. the only negative was the lighting needs a bit of work as it would be nice to be able to see the plate.

They do pub grub style food here as well as restaurant style menus but the pub grub is cooked and presented in restaurant quality. I can take wealthy clients here and enjoy first class dining or pie and a pint and it will be the same quality

Came here on the recommendation of trip advisor and was a bit worried when we saw the people outside but when we went upstairs we felt a bit better. However when the food came we were really impressed the food was brilliant couldn't have asked for better. Amazing burgers and pies. The burgers are designed as required and were scrummy!!

Sat upstairs with our two children (not sure how kid-friendly downstairs would be as it looked like a very traditional pub). Room was great and the big screens showing cricket a bonus to our 9 year old. Loved constructing their own burgers - which were super quality and demolished to the last crumb! Pie was similarly good - no room... More
