Had a very nice beer and at the suggestion of the barmaid tried the club sandwich which was delicious. Would have like a slightly wider selection of Belgian beer on tap, but you can't have everything. Great spot for a casual drink

This is a genuinely impressive restaurant. Looked at from the road, itself a side street, it looks just like a standard, if popular, bar. But head up stairs, and you will find a splendid large dining room. The best tables are all around the side,...More
