"Excellent" please read on: This was my first visit following a recommendation from a friend. The first thing that struck me was the warm welcome from Danielle who seems to run the place with her husband. She introduced herself as soon as we walked though the door, showed us to our table and asked if we would like a drink.... More

Nothing was too much ....and suggestions were made if we were wanting alternatives . The menu contained vegetarian choices which were well thought out and the mixed grill... More

Popped in midweek and despite being very busy we managed to get a table. As usual we started with the meze breads and olives. Just the perfect way to start the evening. Jen went for her favourite fish and chips (served on a plate and not the board) and I went for the best pub curry in the land. The... More

Just returned from a lovely Mother's Day meal. The food was great, plenty of choice for vegan and veggie and food all tasty, plentiful and well presented. Really didn't need a starter!! Pub was clean, modern and had a good atmosphere. Service was a bit hit and miss. Friendly staff but we waited quite a while to order drinks, then... More

I ordered a steak and couldn't even cut it, it was that rare when I asked for medium. Then the manager assumed I said a bad remark and said it to the table next to me, would not recommend poor service rude staff!!!! Basically don't go there!

Our food took way too long to come. The staff were extremely rude and condescending to us. In asked for a medium rare which then came out black and charred. Not a pleasant experience.
