Our party visited Friday 3rd November in the evening. The poor selection of overpriced drinks and meagre seating was tolerable, but not the bad attitude of the young female bartender; we will never return.

What a great find this was . It was packed with Friday night revellers. Great atmosphere , good service at the bar and dining rooms at the rear. Well worth a visit , watch out for the beastly on the wall above the fire place

If they kept a decent beer I'd give it a 5. It deserves a 5 But neglecting the decent ale and craft ale wave is silly when you've done so much else right. Food was great. Really great. Had a nice terrine followed by the...More

Came here with a friend for an afternoon Sunday lunch. We sat in the garden and there was some very questionable dodgy reggae music playing loudly from the top window which was a shame. We both had roast beef. The meal itself was fine but...More

We went there for dinner one Sunday. The decor was special. Pictures of pig were every where. Walls were painted black. It had a special character. Well known for their pork belly. We were not disappointed at all. Tasty and flavoursome. My grand son had...More

we arrived early at 11:00 and we had to wait until 12:00 so alcohol could be served which was ok. We decided for choosing a warm drink instead. I was served one of the best cappuccinos I ever tried. Pleasant surprise.
