We went in late on around 8pm. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Food was gorgeous. Prices quite good. 3 meals and everyone served to high degree of professionalism. You must go. Good beer selection also.

stopped in, was crowded. Asked if i could order to go and they said no. I didn't eat here, but it looks like a local favorite judging by how packed it was.

Popped in for a quick bite to eat before getting the train. Was about 6pm on a Saturday, the bar was quite busy however I got served quickly. 2 tasty meals arrived within 10 minutes. Would certainly recommend

Average service, great food. Had the 8oz rump steak and the veggie burger. Didn't expect much but the food was great quality, fast and great portion sizes. We would definitely eat there again and recommend to friends.
