Nice place to eat, friendly staff, nice atmosphere. You do need a step ladder if you are short as the stools at the front are quite high! Food was good, not outstanding but was what you would expect, normal well cooked, but the chips were a tad overcooked on the outside and a little solid in the middle.

Thank you for your review and just to clarify things, step ladder is not needed as apart of 4 high tables and chairs in the bar area, which are mainly to accommodate drinkers, but a lot of people likes to eat there as well, we have normal tables and chairs, 2 tables of 4 in other site of the bar...

Ate here with friends who have been here before and was expecting great things. We ate downstairs in the wine cellar itself and the first thing I noticed was that it was very loud due to the acoustics of the area. I ordered duck and pancakes for a starter which was pretty good. My main was baked cod with various... More

Was welcomed by friendly staff at the bar, asked if we could eat upstairs and she said that was fine. Took our drinks with us upstairs, the lovely lady followed us to our table and gave us some menu's. I decided to try the beef & ale pie with mash potatoes with vegetables and my husband wanted the ham,eggs and... More

We ate on a busy Saturday night when there was a staff shortage. The atmosphere was buzzing as usual, but sadly the pressure was beginning to show: my blue steak arrived completely cold in the middle, and my friend's rhubarb crumble was effectively rhubarb soup with a few burnt crumbs floating on the top. Having said that, making allowances for... More

This was a first visit for us both but won't be the last. We went on Valentines Day for dinner so the menu was a special. Good selection of dishes for all courses. I had the French onion soup and the salmon cooked with lime and ginger and my husband had duck salad which he said was delicious and the... More

We came here on Friday night with friends for an anniversary meal. We hadn't been before but we will definitely go again. The food was superb, large portions and a good choice. The service was friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We sat upstairs, there was only one big table left free, which the staff kindly gave us. Recommend the mackerel fishcakes. Staff are very friendly and attentive. All in all a great experience and will definitely go back there.

Had a drink in the wine vaults recently alot of people rave about it but for me it lacks a bit of atmosphere and i didnt get a desire to go back any time soon. Drinks prices are high but you can forgive that if there is a buzz about the place, not as good as id hoped. Staff pleasent... More

11 out of 10 for a warm welcome , what a pleasant change from the usual East Anglian pub welcome. Nice fire and nice old fashioned atmosphere despite the re-modernised decor. Good food and excellent valuator money.
