The place was cozy and the ideal place to indulge in a traditional English dinner. Classic British cuisine was an experience. We had beef pie or some type of pot pie, potatoes and other veggies and the exotic black pudding.

Went here 2 nights on the run. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Quirky building with lots of character. Didn't no what to expect with the food, when it came out we were not disappointed. Loads on our plates, Kebabs were best around, Fish'o'licious burger was brilliant. Salad was tasty. reasonably priced and will be going here again !!!

Called in after a day out and the service was great. Easily accommodated a group of 8 with no prior notice. Would call again.

Firstly the Coke was flat but worst of all, when the burgers arrived they were raw in the middle. I told the waitress who said " they are cooked, it's just the paprika that... More
