Went there with a friend for an evening meal and a pint. The food was good - as was the beer - and the service friendly. The restaurant was crowded and a bit noisy - maybe this added to the atmosphere?

First time we have eaten here. Thoroughly recommend. Generous portions of good food. Also reasonable prices. We loved the fish and chips and the burgers. Nice atmosphere

A cute small pub. We went here for drinks and they had really nice beers on draft. Staff was friendly and willing to explain thoroughly about each beer. Also, we got some samples to try. I would definitely recommend.
