    Lovely atmosphere; however the overall experience was average only due to the lengthy wait for food. One bar staff and one waitress doesn’t cut it for a busy pub!

    Some of the food was brilliant and really tasty and nicely set on the plate - but I had the chicken sub and it was just southern fried chicken goujons in a sandwich - a little disappointing considering everyone else really enjoyed their meals and it was £12. Use a proper fresh chicken breast it would make it so much better😀overall the food was good and the atmosphere and service brilliant.

    Friendly and attentive staff, good Christmas food at a reasonable price - £18 for 2 courses or £22 for 3. The Vegetarian option was nut roast with goat's cheese, not exactly exciting but very tasty. Delicious salted caramel cheesecake. Surprisingly great atmosphere, the place was buzzing, which we weren't expecting with the government's warning about Covid and cancellations.

    Excellent service. The small fish and chips is excellent both for value and taste. The new menu is very good. The desserts were also very good we had sticky toffee pudding and the raspberry crumble tart, also delicious. The only complaint was not enough custard in the small pots but when we were asked if all was ok we mentioned that fact and she immediately came out with more custard! Very pleased
