          The customer service was awesome! I left my wallet in the room, and they mailed it back to me in the U.S. Enjoyed the pub on the first floor. Nice location in older part of town. Parking is not for the faint of heart.

          We had an excellent time in the pub. Live music and wonderful food. However the room was a big disappointment. The bed was rock hard and the pillows were too. I had to use my travel pillow as the ones on the bed were hurting...More

          Dropped in for a quick lunch. Special was a curried fish pie which was nice if sightly unusual. Enjoyed it. Pleanty of traditional pub food if you prefer. Pub was a bit quiet but would go back when the live entertainment is on or evening/weekend....More

          Met a friend for a beer and food one evening. The beer is excellent and well kept. The venison pie was awesome; possibly the best I've ever had. Great atmosphere and excellent service at a very fair price. You'd be crazy not to visit.
