Visited twice while we were staying a short walk away. Beer and drinks good. Food on the first night was on a special menu and was fantastic. On our second visit food was on the standard menu and was also good.

We visited tonight, a Monday night without a booking. Table of 3 with a table straight away. Would recommend ordering from the specials rather than full menu. Didn't disappoint! Everything tasted yum, reasonably priced and lovely lovely staff!
