Visiting here is like travelling back in time. Lots of original features to the restaurant throughout the building. Absolutely fab menu and portions are generous and all dishes were fantastic. Overall a lovely evening meal with colleagues. I'll be back next time I'm in town!

This place is a gem with its informal and cozy environment. We had some real traditional british food, prepared with care. Staff is super welcoming and nice. They had a smile for us even after the terrible terrorist attack. Thank you.

An interesting building offering a nice selection of real ales, but the meals on offer are pricey for what they offer. Staff seemed tired and it was only 3 in the afternoon. Must've been a busy morning. Worth a visit for the architecture alone.
