The Last Inn has always led the way, but now has a contender. Really pleased to see another venue of this quality in the Town. Only stopped for a quick drink, so didn't eat but the place has a stylish atmosphere. Will return...!

Dogs are allowed at the discretion of the manager on the day. Probably not during very busy food service times and Friday and Saturday nights; but a wet Sunday afternoon, no problem! The Tilman.
