I work nearby and only found this place today for a business lunch. Nice atmosphere, attentive staff, great food and a real gem of a find. Will definitely return.

Bank holiday lunch with family. Good service and food was very good. Great crispy chips cooked to perfection which are so difficult to get in some pubs. Will definately return.

Sorry not sure exactly what hours but they do breakfast, dinner and lunch so they must pretty much be open all the time. Give them a call.
