I dropped by the Glen for an early afternoon Beamish and Irish stew and I was not disappointed. Both were tasty and filling. I had a special request for Toby and he accommodated me going the extra mile to make me feel welcome - good...More

Three of us had dinner here one night and each of us ordered something different. Each one of us raved about our food. A great find.

Now I must be honest and and say this is not where I may have lunch. On a noisy, busy street, decor not appealing and surrounded by building works, you get the picture. But looks are deceptive and in this case exactly so. Wonderful staff,...More

You must try the lamb stew. Brings back wonderful memories of my mother’s incredible cooking. The lamb is plentiful & very lean. Service is also stellar. Enjoy!
