Nice atmosphere, friendly welcome from staff. Good wine selection. Food menu looked good although we did not eat. Nice outside area worth a visit.

Unfortunately the worst meal I've had in Norwich - Bloody Mary Crayfish w/Tortilla Basket was a soggy & oily tortilla covered with tough crayfish in a watery Marie Rose sauce. Burgers very average - shame as menu suggested better.

Staff are helpful and always... More

Went on a glorious Saturday lunch time and sat in the beer garden. Had a bite to eat for lunch. Can highly recommend the Crayfish cocktail. Yum Yum! Food was excellent and served really quickly.
