I tend to avoid steaks in pubs. Normally over cooked and poor quality. This Ribeye could have been the best I have tasted in years (Michelin Star apart). Was really surprised at how good it was. In fact I went back last Friday and had the steak again and just as good!

Went for a catch up with family, service excellent and it was easy to hear the conversation as the tables are not on top of each other. Very friendly, light and airy place,lovely decor. The men had the venison and were slightly disappointed that there was not more veg!!plates came hot which was great and we will definitely be back.
