Popped in with a few mates on our way to the local Gurkha restaurant. Most tables were occupied but not overly crowded, and a nice little buzz about the place. The 2 staff behind the bar were really friendly and happy to give a sample....More

Ah, a victim of our own success, it seems! There are plenty of occasions when we have tables available- daytimes are usually quieter than evenings. We hope you manage to find another chance to come in and sample some of our great beers and food,...More
