Premises very visually attractive and pub has tremendous curbside appeal.Interbally decor doesnt disappoint- very smart cosy. Warm welcome from staff and efficient service both at bar and in restaurant. Menu offers upmarket pub food- excellent quality fresh ingredients that are also presented well on plate.
