The pub is nice enough on a surface level, but management let this place down. Seems like a hobby over a business. Poor business practice all over. It's clean and such, but no heart, terribly trained if affable staff. Such a shame

Popped in while waiting four hours for a delayed train. Felt like home, plugs to do laptop, food served really quickly and waitress was the nicest I've ever met. Bringing my friends here! Top quality x
