“Great lunch venue with lovely service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

We had lunch at this pub for the first time today. Great, friendly prompt service throughout our lunch. I had the Lamb salad which was excellent and the perfect size. My partner had the Caesar salad which was nice although the presentation was a little unusual.

Lovely renovation with airy, light interiors and would definitely return.

“food's usually good, but service isnt great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

the food is usually pretty good, with good desserts and a large selection of drinks. Service is not great, however. The girls are never very friendly, and it often seems as though you're in the way or annoying them. which is never a good atmosphere. at least, it isnt conducive to spending much money here. I'd come back for the trivia and the schnitzels, but only for that.

“Food okay. A bit pricey though for what you get...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2013 via mobile

Went there for dinner with a group of 7 others.
I had the lamb salad it was nice. Smaller than the last time I visited here. My husband had the salt and pepper squid. It was good. Nice and tender. The prices were higher than expected for the size of the meal.
Got busy and was quite loud with the music etc.. We are younger and I'm used to busy pubs but it was hard to have a conversation with others. I'd only return if someone else organised it.

“Great accommodation & staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for a weekend with friends. Just wanted to say the accommodation & staff were excellent... Anthony (manager/owner?) was particularly good to deal with. Highly recommended.
