Visited for a few drinks one evening mid week after moving to the area. Nice and warm inside, nice surroundings and polite staff. Great range of drinks on offer and reasonably priced for the location of the premises. Will return and definitely recommend.

12 of us arrived and were escorted upstairs to the quiet area. Service was fantastic, the meals plentiful with a good choice and very reasonably priced. Two courses, two rounds of drink large meals and change from £235.
