Atmospheric pub with friendly and efficient staff. The charcuterie was excellent - I have never had a pork pie before where the pastry melted in my mouth.My friend and I had different main courses but both were of a high standard. Too full for desserts!!

We arrived today at 12.40, having booked lunch for 12.45. The barman was reading something, and paid us no attention. When, after a couple of minutes he did, he could not understand the phrase 'a half of bitter, please.' A waitress had to come to...More

Visited for daughters birthday. Lovely room.. quiet and candlelit. Good service and excellent food. We had cote de boeuf and Barnsley chops- delicious. Not cheap but loved it. Small pub/ bar at the front - lots of atmosphere! Recommend.

Food was delicious and the pub was full. We lucked out and got a table. Had to order at the bar which was fine. They have a kids menu also if you have Littles.
