I had lunch here and enjoyed it. The food was fine and the service was fast and friendly. The pub was catering for a mixed crowd including professionals in for lunch, ladies sipping brandies and punters betting on the horses. I will call again.

This is a local pub - good if you want to pop out for a chat. Somewhere to pop into for a quick pint before heading somewhere for a night out. It lacks atmosphere - areas are sectioned off and the waitresses complete a circuit...More
