We popped in to get out of the rain and were really glad we did! We ordered a charcuterie board with cheese and some prawn skewers. The meat was beautifully presented and was so tasty, and good value for money.

Located across the road from Christ Church Cathedral it provides a good stop off for lunch. Food is very good and the service is friendly. Seasoned steaks are a speciality but even the standard fish and chips was very tasty. Highly recommended.
