A very nice relaxing pub. Lovely traditional interior. Food is very good, good menu and nice well prepared and presented food. Not the most economical prices both bar and food. But for a nice occasion probably worth it.

There is a seating area but only small in front of the bar - but the staff are superb I am sure they will accommodate if more seats are required. I'm sure you will enjoy as it's always fabulous.
