The look of the pub inside and out, is cosy and relaxed, keeping the features of the building but also feeling clean and modern. I went for... More

When our food came it was delicious, we had a Waygu burger with chorizo, a kids burger, kids pizza and the halloumi and chips. When the server checked on... More

We came here for a late lunch and the food was absolutely amazing! The pizza was the best thing - fig and goats cheese pizza! The decor was very modern and then seating was comfy and cosy. I would definitely come back here!

Been back several times, this restaurant changes their menu reasonably frequently and is consistently good. We use it pretty regularly. Can get busy but early evening is a good time.
