This tiny pub is a delight. Lots of interesting beers on tap - not big brewery stuff. An interesting menu and all dishes come as either small (enough for me) or large for the larger consumer I guess. And then there's the music! Thursday, Saturday...More

Stumbled across this pub on a rainy day and was recommended the espresso martini to warm me up, was ABSOLUTELY delicious. Pub has a cosy and very friendly atmosphere, will be back for sure.

We had two ‘Anglo-Indian pies, one scrambled paneer, green peas and makhani sauce, the other a sublime chicken tikka masala, with a couple of beers. When I arrived I was disappointed that there was no steak and ale but when we tasted the pies, they...More

Always have a great time in this cosy little pub. It serves great food, has fab live music, is family run and is always a great atmosphere. If only it was closer to home, this place would definitely be my favourite local!

The ‘Glad’ as it likes to be known, has gone through a bit of an up and down time in recent years or to be precise down and now up. Late in 2015 it was in serious danger of being bulldozed and replaced by more...More

I had a lovely welcoming when arriving at the Gladstone today. I ordered the Lollypop chicken and I must say it’s the best think I’ve tried in a very long time. Want to give Amy the chef a well done!!!
