We both had the low and slow burgers which were very tasty and well cooked. Our third visit in last 6 months! Food always good but for the second time waiting staff disappeared before end of meal so had to go to bar and they had to search for order! Will still return as food is so nice

Saw a sign for a pub lunch at a reasonable price so we decided to try it. Kennedys bar was atmospheric and rustic but still... More
