My wife and I had lunch here today - not bad for a new hospitality venture as it's over 40 years since my last visit here, The whole pub has been tastefully modernised and just Ooozes space and more spaces in many rooms.

The other point that i must say is Chris (Bar Staff) and Cameron (waiting... More

We visited on a Sunday lunchtime and arrived as it opened. Nobody greeted us and staff were chatting together in the bar area - as it was our first visit, we didn't really know where to head but that alone didn't concern us too much. However, aspects of our visit were equally not as satisfactory, whilst the children's menu and... More

Nice pub food, trying to be a bit posher than just a pub, with restaurant section separate from the pub once inside. You might be able to get the same menu at the bar but I suspect the prices won't be less for the loss of full service. Prices reflect what they're trying to do.

Hi Mike H Thanks for taking the time to review us, we do offer the same menu in the bar area but its for more casual dining so the table service is limited. Our menu is going through extensive changes so please look out on our website if you have not signed up already. We hope to see you soon... More
