Had a great lunch here with family, a good choice of meals available including children meals. There is something here for all, whether you want a small meal or a full plate. The pork belly was great, it's a great place to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon with family, I will be going back again.

Fabulous Menu, something for everyone. Quick service, you order and pay for your meal at the bar. Help yourself to cutlery. We dined inside, but plenty of high tables and stools outside. When the food arrived, the plates were stacked high with food.

Had lunch with a group of work friends. We ordered burgers & salads. All meals were of a generous size & well priced. Service was very quick which we appreciated as we were there during our lunch break.

A balmy spring afternoon, we ordered just the Mezza board & it was fantastic. Great with a cold 'Pacific Ale'... The hot meats, antipasto & bread were the perfect accompaniment...

The food here was really good and the serving size was great. Good value for money. If you want a quiet place to eat and chat this isn't it on a Saturday night but the atmosphere is really good. Very enjoyable and delicious food. Will go again

Dropped in for a Sunday lunch with family and found plenty of seating available although a few tables had reservation signs on them. Liked the idea that the reservations also mentioned you were welcome to sit there but table needed to be vacated by a certain time. Greater efficiency for those just after a quick drink or bar snack.

Always enjoy the feel and location of this bar. Busy spot even better in summer. Big screen TV means I can have a drink and meal whilst watching the Rugby !, yes. Try the bar meals, good value. Specials worth a look, curry beef pot pie on tonight.
