Had dinner which was overpriced. The restaurant was empty and lacked atmosphere. Landlord friendly but had some locals in who seemed up for a fight

Been a lot of times since Alex, Emma and Fabian took over, it's nice to see our local pub back to its very best, the food is out of this world with local fresh produce being used. A must for all food lovers

Hi Graham - there should be space still. How many of you are there and did you just want some space at the bar if not a table? It's £7/head and includes a bowl of chilli or vegetarian curry.
