We popped into this place for a glass of wine after having had dinner around the corner and the staff were more interested in having a big chatfest and a giggle amongst each other down one of the bar, essentially ignoring us. The bar was more than half empty and we had to call them over to get another glass... More

Steak night is amazingly good value and the food is consistently good. There's one fabulous staff member in particular, I think she's the manager. Always friendly and lovely to the older crowd too

We visited Public House on the weekend for an engagement party. Fantastic service both in the function room and in the courtyard. Affordable drinks and friendly staff. Warm and good range of nibbles.

I went here with some girlfriends and had some yummy shared plates. The highlight was the soft shell crab tacos and the zucchini flowers. The crowd is quite hip and trendy so be prepared for friends checking out other friendship groups. Quite amusing really.

The weather was nice so we sat upstairs in the Roof Terrace. At lunch time we were the only ones so the place was lovely and quiet and peaceful. We shared 4 small plates but the small was quite a decent size and we could have done with 3 small plates between the 2 of us. 1 small plate is... More

If a restaurant serves soggy, old chips, it's usually the tip of the iceberg, and it was. Advertises as fine dining, but when you can get a proper chicken Parma at a local pub that's better than the one I had here, it's a concern.

Hi Greyhound77 - I think you may have the incorrect venue. We don't serve Parmas and we are not a pub. Cheers. More
