Perfect.
Food excellent.
Social distancing, the best I've seen - big physical screens between tables and not crowded.

Nice place but the service was very slow even though it was quiet. The service staff seemed to not keep track of our table at all and Henry not paying attention. Asking if we want more drinks when a bottle of wine just arrived yet nor asking if we were ready to order food when having been sat for ages.

Superb! The food was perfectly cooked and delicious. The wine (chosen for us by the friendly, professional waitress) was excellent. Considering the very high standard the prices are very reasonable too. Cannot recommend highly enough, we'll certainly beasty calling wherever we're in town. Thank you..

4 of us out for dinner to celebrate a birthday. Staff were welcoming and very professional regarding covid rules. Felt safe. Cocktails and food were excellent if the food was slightly over priced. Good atmosphere and surroundings. Staff attentive but seemed run off their feet a bit.
We all enjoyed our visit.

A lovely family meal - attentive but unfussy service. Drawing book and crayons provided for the 4 year old. Food very good Gastropub quality, especially desserts. Drinks fine. Dining area had less of the “theme” of the pub as would be expected. Would happily return - price mid to top end Gastropub range.

We didn’t eat so I cannot comment on the food. The service was very very good, staff were lovely!
I ordered a vodka and cranberry...I would suggest they changed which cranberry juice they use :) was pretty unpleasant. But over all our experience was great!!

Absolutely freezing for the outside seating, only stayed for one drink due to lack of heaters & shelter. Staff were quite rude. Never got any food as very limited veggie/vegan options.

Didnt have any food. Had booked for drinks inside but was taken to some sort of mini beer garden covered with a huge umbrella. It had heaters but ours was broken. Had expected to be seated inside. Service was slow and atmosphere none existent. Was quite disapointed and only stayed for an hour.

Service was great. Food was OK - mainly because the beef burger was extremely greasy and couldn't physically be picked up.

Only marked down because we were outside and it was windy and cold but they obviously had no control over that.

Lovely seating bit through the back of the bar which was peaceful, comfortably lit and nice so we could catch up after the fiasco of 2020!

Food was great, drinks choice was good.

All in all, great times.

We loved this eatery especially the delicious pies - quite a young crowd but not made to feel like oldies. Highly recommended
