Not at all as expected. Staff very welcoming, G&R clean and uncluttered (compared to visit prior to change of ownership) and food excellent. This is fine dining and not pub grub (even good quality pub grub doesn't match presentation). More a feast for the eyes...More

Dull December, we ate from the daily 2/3 course menu. Cooked to order by a polite, approachable staff. Sensible medium sized portions.. Just right for us. If you want warmed over carvery piled up plates forget it. Far too good for you. Highly recommended.
