I booked a big table here for 12 people for my birthday outing. Although it was a bit of a squeeze, it really a really nice experience.

We all opted for the Sunday roast which was either pork or beef. It was great, well presented food. We all really enjoyed it.

The pub as a whole is nice and intimate, very bright and suitable for someone who's looking for a cafe to read a book etc too. (There was someone working on their laptop while we were there.

Deffo recommended!

Tried this place after being wowed at pickled piglet, a little disappointed at quality of food. Had a wide number of dishes off menu. The sea food platter and crispy chicken were the best of a pretty average offering. Beer and drinks offering is very comprehensive but can be very expensive. The stout is very good. Save your money and go to the Pickled Piglet.

Decided to pop in there for a more relaxed fine dinning and we were not disappointed! Ordered the fish platter which came with some bread, chips with bacon and aioli and the pork and celeriac. Everything was cooked very well if not a little over salted but we did order salty dishes. For two people the platter, small meat plate and a side amount was perfect for us and the portion sizes were reasonable. Great selection of drinks and beer too. Finished with the rhubarb and custard profiteroles which were lovely and light. Thought everything was priced really well and was expecting the bill to be a lot more yet it was surprisingly low! I’m only being picky when I say the lights could do with turning the brightness down and maybe a few candles about but that’s me being pedantic. Would highly recommend anyone to try this place as you won’t be disappointed!

Made another lunchtime visit with members of my family yesterday. Informal dining in a light, tastefully renovated Jewellery Quarter pub with an friendly, informal vibe. Food always well presented. Never disappoints.
