Vegetable Enchilada is a wrap filled with fried onions and a few pieces of yellow pepper; not a bean in sight (or any other vegetables, for that matter).

Good selection on the menu at reasonable prices .Plenty of seating that also gives you some privacy in most of the areas. Service was OK ,it was a quiet night with only two servers on duty so a little slow at times.

Nice building and quite well decorated but service and food leave a lot to be desired. Went with wife and we both had a fairly miserable experience. Staff were pleasant but seemed to have absolutely no enthusiasm. This plave has been better previously. Avoid if possible

Visited this pub for a pre show drink and although had visited some years ago for lunch was greatly suprised by the refurbishment that has taken place since then.Friendly barman time for chat and explained new surroundings,plenty of space and very comfortable seating a must to visit and enjoy.
