Pub was recommended to us and I could see why. The beer was excellent and there was a great pub atmosphere. My friend had Fish ( haddock) and chips which were good. The Hot Chilli Thai stir fry failed the basic description test it was not hot and not even mild - I think the chef forgot to put in any chilli at all. Foolishly I ate it but did tell the waitress to tell the chef that it was not what was on the menu. No apology or explanation followed. Disappointing. We would probably go back for all reasons given by the other reviewers.
