In short, the food is really really good for a pub. Service is excellent and there's a great variety of beers. I was surprised. Excellent

Went to this hotel on Sunday 12 March with 4 other couples. 3 of us ordered the Chicken Kiev. Each and every one was hard as a rock outside and dry inside. You buy a Kiev to have that garlic which is infused with the chicken. All 3 had next to none. Spoke to the waiters who, in their defense,... More

Went for a meal in the evening after the races. My husband and I chose fish and chips that looked lovely but unfortunately we were up all night 😪 So maybe a bad choice on such a hot night. Son and grandson were fine as they had pizza. All the food looked very nice so we ere just unfortunate.

Not far from the city, classic old pub but very modern inside, main bar and several dining areas, menu has variety, is a little pricy but from the size of the meal it is worth it, great spot to catch up with friends and families.

Great pub! Enjoyed some pizzas from the pizza bar, but there are many options on the menu that I'd also like to try. Also has a decent selection of wine and beers on tap. Would recommend checking it out.
