We always love getting a meal here. Downstairs is better for us. Quieter. Wait staff very accommodating. They even made us a bowl of mash even though it wasn't on the menu. Well done GP

This restaurant / bar gets busy - you probably need a reservation for dinner. Eating in this wonderful old historic building is a real treat. It is historic both inside and out. We had a group with a set menu - all of the meal...More

Hi, I remembered seeing a few small screens around and a medium sized screen. Not sure about the large sized ones, sorry about it as we were only there for social dinner night out not watching the games. E-T
