  • Excellent food and drink. The tempura courgettes were (in the words of Craig Revel Horwood), gorgeous.

  • positive review I’d recommend absolutely everything! Always a fabulous atmosphere, excellent range of guest ales, great selection of wine and of course Gin ?We have sampled many dishes on the extensive menu too, especially the vegetarian ones. And the staff... they are fantastic George, James and the team are so accommodating. With all of these wonderful points why wouldn’t we have our wedding party here! Thank you all ???

  • Nice food, but its not sure if it wants to be a bar or restaurant. Staff were fantastic and we left a tip for that, price was reasonable but you need to take your order to the bar and we weren't offered a dessert menu. Not really what I want from a restaurant

  • Friendly service, great food (pleasantly surprised by the eggy bread!). Mixture of Spanish and Greek tapas. Great selection of gins and rums too. Has a laid-back pub atmosphere and also shows sport.
