After reading the reviews here I booked a table for guests from overseas. Bad decision, overlooked food, could not hear yourselves speak, a very disappointing evening fir something I had tried so hard to plan

Visited on Saturday night, were greeted by friendly staff, beer fab. Busy with groups and couples alike, has a lovely atmosphere. Downside, only open until 11pm due to being situated in a residential area, but a great find.
