Tried this as an alternative to the Hatchet just down the road. This pub is still very dingy, but perhaps not as bad as the Hatchet. Layout is a little less cluttered. Service very friendly and prompt. Food nice and hot, delivered quickly.

I visited here with my daughter. Breakfast was ok but little cold. We both had all day breakfast my toast was burnt, beans cold tomatoes burnt, fried egg was more like a boiled egg. For the money can't expect it to be like The Savoy.

Here is what happened: we ordered two Paninis, one with salad and the other one with chips. When they brought the dishes to the table, both plates came with... More

The waitress was absolutely rude. She threw the plates down. One of our orders were wrong so she tutted at us and walked off with the plate. She didnt smile once and was extremely arrogant . Wont be visiting again!

Last visit we ordered eggs Benedict to be told they had sold out. This was 10am. Went to the Tap today and ordered Eggs Benedict only yo be told they had no Hollandaise Sauce.... More
