I visited here with my partner last month. The service was fast but not so that you felt rushed, the waiter was helpful and smiling, he recommended to us the sharing board which had different meats. Also which beer to try. I will be back.

I had ribs and wings at £12.99 and felt a little short changed. Ribs were ok, not as tender as I would hope, and so called xxl wings were just normal wings? Won't be back in a hurry.
