Lovely venue. Friendly staff. Yummy food. Good menu choices. Fine beers and fine wine. A little expensive but somehow forgivable. Definitely worth revisiting.

I had roast pork which was the most tender pork I have had in a long while. The service was excellent, really efficient and friendly. The pub was busy and rightly so given the standard of food and service.

Hi there is a back section that is similar to a restaurant so I would think it wouldn’t be a problem. We have only been there after 8 and haven’t seen any young children perhaps it might be worth giving them a call. H
