A great venue for drinks or food with the pizza menu worth a good look through on it's own merits. The atmosphere is good with plenty of room to sit and enjoy the real fire (during winter anyway!)

Attended to meet a friend. The staff were really attentive especially Gabby, so I decided to try the new pizza which was excellent. Nice surroundings.

First time back since the refurbishment. Roast beef, Roast Chicken and the veggie cauliflower cheese suet pudding were all excellent. Why not 5stars? - service quiet slow. Definitely going back though.More

Michael was a fantastic host for our evening and the food was wonderful as well. Service was very prompt and there were no qualms when we added extra food to our order just before our starters came out! Lovely evening.
