Hi Tom. Apologies for the late response. You can view our menus on our website. We do change some items at the beginning of each week so they can be a little inaccurate for a day or so. but they're generally correct. You can... More
Well - now that it is truly a free house (not owned by a brewery and tied or part of a chain - however small) hopefully this can only bode well for the pub. The tapas was sampled Saturday lunchtime (4 dishes for £20, 3 for £15.50 or individual) and declared 'superb'. All the staff I spoke to were very friendly. I suggest a visit and judge for yourself, it's a lovely spot. As for the question - will you be serving food on a Sunday evening too? Forgot to ask in person.
