If you are looking for somewhere to have a drink this pub is great, if you are looking for a meal. I would not recommend the sirloin steak.

Description
Purveyors of fine wines and good times, we're no strangers to the art of quality thirst quenching. With our extensive wine list, new and improved cocktail menu and Cask Marque certified ales, you can be sure to find just the tonic, whatever your tipple, in Allington's best local boozer. But we're not just about eating and drinking... We firmly believe that any pub should be the hub of its local community, and try to provide a selection of events to cater for all the eclectic and wonderful people who live in Allington. Our door is always open (during designated opening hours) and there's always something going on to get involved with or laugh at in equal measures. It's not a pub, it's a way.
