Popped in here for a quick drink opposite witherspoons have to say is a bit more expensive however lovely even, old but nice great staff and loving the untouched feel of the venue reminds me of the 90's inside as an old pub I used to drink in.

Avoid this place. The ambience is fairly muted, but exaggerated in a negative way, by brusque staff. A shame, as the pub itself is well appointed. The carvery is also a great disappointment. Full of geriatrics on tours.

good food, comfortable and clean environment and the staff were brilliant! We visited in November and were a large group of mixed ages from 2 years to 50 years and there were 20 of us in total so not a small group by any standards.
