The General is a busy bar/pub with a good atmosphere. Although tonight the solo singer music was way to loud and it was hard to continue any conversations. The pizza was good and I recommend the flu fighter with chilli and ginger, great vegetarian pizza....More

This is a great place all round, the food, the location, the atmosphere and prices are not for the budget conscious but you do get what you pay for.

We had lunch here and was not sure what to expect. The atmosphere is great and the staff very pleasant and down to earth. The view of course is amazing. The food was great cafe style meal and not pricey. Overall a worthwhile experience.
