Had a lovely meal here. It was very busy when we went (around 7 pm) but we did manage to get a table without booking. The food was very good but unfortunately it took 40 minutes to arrive...hence 4 stars instead of 5.

What an absolutely delightful little pub this is. We just happened on it by accident after looking for a nice place to eat. Food is good with a fair sized menu, and the beer selection spot on.
