Had a long, very enjoyable family Sunday lunch here. Restaurant was not too noisy despite being very busy, service was excellent but I was disappointed by my roast beef (too well done and thin slices) and by the calamari starter. Others had the roast lamb...More

Lovely pub and beer garden, I didn't have any food but the food coming up looked really nice. The only downside to this pub is it is very pricey.

2 people serving at the bar on a busy Thursday night. Waited 20 mins to get a drink. Seriously. Would give this place a miss. Person next to me also sent her burger back. Plenty of other better places in this area.
