The food was excellent. We ate on St Patrick's night when they had a special menu, however, the general menu also looked very good and came complete with details of all different ingrediants to make it easy for any allergy sufferers. Would certainly go there...More

This is the part where visitors can enjoy a more formal, sit-down dining experience. Sourced from the same kitchens as the Brewers Arms the food is excellent and is an excellent choice if you have longer to savour the food. Strongly recommended.

Have eaten here twice in the last month. On both occasions staff were rushed and kept forgetting things, for example drinks, side orders. Also arriving at 7.30pm and food arriving an hour and a quarter later is too long to wait. Can't believe that this...More
