Staff are really chatty and friendly and food is top notch. Visited twice in a couple of days (both for lunch) and heartily recommend soup/sandwich... More

Booked the cocktail tasting and a meal for a friend's hen do, the staff were all brilliant and the cocktail making was great fun. Couldn't fault the food either but it was the service that really made it.

The staff seemed nice, although we didn't take our dogs in, they are genuinely dog-friendly and clearly enjoy having the dogs there. The food was not so good, I had a chicken and pesto sandwich, and... More
