Gastro pub with very good food options. Part of the Jacobs franchise the pub has a family friendly and casual front bar with finer dining out back. Highly recommended.

Came with friends. Quieter than usual. Although bar area seats taken, so we sat at the school tables in the opposite side. Draughty and not very comfortable. The bar area looked lovely with the decorations. Staff friendly and available.More

We just turned up at about 7 pm and were able to sit outside without too much of a problem. You can call ahead but they only book the tables inside (I think). Amazing food, you will love it.
