Having read the food reviews and being an historical building mentioned in two of Dicken's novels, I expected at least a pie and mash, but just a bar, not a pub, geared to clubbers rather than pubbers!

Friendly staff, quick service and steak to die for! Highly recommend the rump steak, and kids chicken bites. Definitely value for money.
