We had a very nice lunch here last week. The pub was recommended to us and so we thought we would try it. We'll definitely come here again when we are in the area.

Had a great meal with family last Saturday evening. Food and wine were superb. We are regular diners but haven't been for a good few months, I felt the portions were bigger than previous meals but quality still v good. My only comment would be that it emptied out very early so we were the last people there and it was only about 10ish. This meant the great atmosphere that existed early on disappeared too soon. However, a minor point and we will Def be back.

A very enjoyable experience. Please thank Vinnie. Not your fault - but my sister found the pork belly dish to rich in fat for her liking. She recognised it was her mistake choosing this dish which is noted for its richness.
