Saw this place advertised in the classic fighters paper. We arrived and found it to be exactly what the tin said! Great garden, huge selection of craft beer and food honest food.

Finding somewhere to actually eat in the evening which is reasonably priced is finding like hens teeth. I'd found it on line and we went out and eventually spotted it tucked away. We really enjoyed our meals and would have gone back a second night, only it was closed on the Sunday!

Went for a Work Function and was greeted by cigarette smoke which became worse as the evening progressed. Finally driven out. The food put on was very average though the staff friendly. Someone with proper hospitality experience could turn this place into something nice.

The main area under the outside canopy fills up with cigarette smoke from the outside bar. This is off putting and I have left several times because of the smoke. The outside garden area has had a tidy up at last as there was wood, old plant pots and dead plants lying around. A more cherry greeting as you came in the door would be appreciated.
Nice inside area by the fire on cold days.
Waiting staff need a bit of work
One of the owners needs some PR training

Nothing outstanding, pleasant enough. Food average, happy staff. Nothing to make this place a must go to.
