Although this is classed as my local, I hadn't been for a while as it had got a bit too 'foody' for a pub. After learning of a change of menu/chef we gave it a go and were very impressed. Service was swift, drinks/food were delicious and although it was relatively busy, we didn't feel rushed. The only thing I... More

Then to make matters worse one meal was not even ordered through the kitchen! One member of the party had to wait whilst the rest had their meals. When it did eventually arrive it was... More
