Been here on 2 occasions for special family meals, both times have been amazing. The food here is out of this world and very reasonably priced. The service is very friendly, all the staff are very polite. Will definitely be returning very soon :)

Had a good meal and good service. OK there may be cheaper around but no queuing at the bar to place order for food or drinks. Waiters cost money so not going to be the cheapest but certainly not expensive.

Visited many times nice pub, reminds bit of an 80s pub due to red velour seating etc but that's what I like about it and the layout. Has restaurant part to sit if prefer or just sit in pub side to eat. Has large vault...More
