We took our 3 year old granddaughter for a meal in The Architect. As always Alan and the team were attentive and helpful. Great food in pleasant surroundings with a friendly atmosphere. Not many good restaurants are truly child friendly, The Architect certainly is.

Popped in for lunch. Beef sandwich spot on. Halloumi fries with sweet chilli sauce belting. Well worth a try. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for which is quality. Friendly polite staff all round.

Nice pub in a nice location. Food is average, but the atmosphere and drinks selection is great! Really nice pub garden for sunny days. Watch out for race days as gets very busy.
