Met a business colleague here for a catch up. A pub with a good feel and good reputation. Just sat in the garden for a beer so not too much else to say apart from I would like to come back and try the menu as food looked really very good.

This is my third visit this year. Amazing place which really ticks every single box for a great evening out. Fantastic food, top level service (thank you Lucy) and a warm cosy atmosphere. Even booking the table via telephone was a pleasure. Be back soon!

Booked a table for Sunday lunch the day before - we needed to extend the booking and found them to be very accommodating. All had the roast menu (two courses for £15.95). Overall I thought it was very good value, although I think you get a lot less meat if you order the chicken - I assume that's because of... More

Visited for an evening meal for six of us, had a reserved table in near the main bar. Service was good as was the food, good atmosphere throughout the evening with plenty of people coming and going. Had a nice looking garden which looks to be worth a visit in the summer so will definitely visit again.

I came with my family and parents for my birthday and had a fantastic meal. Every mouthful of every meal surpassed expectations. I would highly recommend and definitely be coming back. With my job I eat in London on many occasions and the food I had here far exceeded more expensive meals elsewhere. You must come here I assure you... More

tasty food and very original for a pub, great and friendly service, nothing was too much trouble for them. My husband would have stayed and tried every beer on tap if given the chance!
