Large variety of taps. I ordered a pot to share with my boyfriend. They are huge!!! I probably ordered the most boring one and it wasn’t great (#1). I was mostly disappointed with the quality of fries that came out. We got tiny pieces leftover...More

Food was good. Took an age to get a drink or to get our food. Mains came out before starters. Staff apart from one member were very poor. It was busy but not jammed packed. Massive selection of beers and a nice location.

I see other people had a good experience. Despite the fact that the server (once finally greeted the table ten minutes later) was cordial and knowledgeable, this didn’t make up for the bad experience. The beer is 4 times as much as if I were...More
