Wanted to get the best bang for my buck, ordered toad in the hole, out of stock. Was left with the dreaded calamari rings. Will I get 3/4/5? The answer is 3, 3 calamari rings for £5. Gracias Old Bell, I won’t be returning.

The staff were able to rearrange our table setting for less people turning up. Food was good and plentiful. Staff helpful and friendly. No pressure to leave once meal finished.
