All of our food is freshly prepared by Head Chef Michal Kaszuba and his brigade in the Lore kitchen on the first floor. Our menus have been created especially to reflect the seasons, when ingredients are at their very best.
Our legendary Sunday roast is slow-cooked with delicious trimmings.

THE PUB
A copper and pewter topped bar serving a range of beers, including our very own Gritchie brews, premium spirits, cocktails and selected wines. The walls are adorned with eclectic and original artwork.

THE KITCHEN
Open plan but still intimate. Experience the sight and sound of our open kitchen with the Chefs cooking on our bespoke, charcoal fuelled oven and char-grill.

THE PRIVATE ROOM
A wonderful private room with private bar on its own floor.

    Lovely staff but it was very cold in there and the food wasn't tasty unfortunately. The meat is left on the counter which was fine but seeing the chef sneak a little piece in his mouth now and then was off putting.

    The restaurant is situated above the pub, and is accessed up a narrow rickety, twisty staircase. The toilets are a floor higher than the restaurant up a steeper, narrower set of rickety stairs that some may find hard to navigate. Once the restaurant though it was bustling with people, it’s only small and makes use of the space it has but may seem a little cramped to some. The service is really good, plenty of information offered by the waiting staff and the busy ambience is generated through a mix of the hustle and bustle them and of the open style kitchen with the chefs creating a very welcoming atmosphere. The food and drink was incredible, if a little over priced, which would be my only slight negative. Other than that if you’re looking for something a little different then this is a fantastic location for dinner for two or smaller groups meeting up once in a while.
