The only one hiccup is that they didn't have a chicken or turkey on Sunday, I think most children, oaps and fussy eaters would appreciate it, I would for my children as I'm definitely coming back. Everything else was lovely, I had beef and it was cooked perfectly, the presentation was great, ambiance and decor was nice. Staff lovely and quick service.

Delicious food served by friendly and attentive staff in a comfortable and stylish room. Absolutely the best steak I have had in as long as I can remember with every accompaniment just perfect.
A welcome treat.

This is normally our go to place for Sunday lunch, but yesterday was a disappointment. The plates were cold so our food got cold before we could finish it and the red cabbage and carrots were only lukewarm when they arrived. Added to that my beef was full of gristle and inedible. I did bring this up with the waitress at the time, and asked her to pass it on to the kitchen staff.

they over sold themselves, we went there expecting a gastro pub, it it's just a decent pub. Not great, not bad. if you're hungry and need a drink its fine, but not a gastroenterologist's delight.

Fabulous as always, we have been coming here for Sunday lunch since it opened (with a gap for Covid) . Plenty of really good food and excellent table service.
