If you want a trip back in time with a really oldy worldly Pub, then this one is for you! Superb selection on the menu with excellent fish all prepared to order. Highly recommended by friends and we were delighted with the friendly service and quality of the lunch. Another place to definitely return to!

Four of us met here for lunch and none of us was disappointed. The wild mushroom tagliatelle was excellent. Staff were efficient and friendly. It must be great in the summer to sit outside and enjoy the view.
