    beers are ok, just make sure you do not eat here, anything with salted caramel in particular. i can still not believe they served us standard caramel with massive lumps of rock salt pinched on it.

    Love the pub but the service is always a bit on the poor side. Serve last orders at 12 then start ushering you out at 5 past.

    Went for lunch today. Roast was average, you could tell that it was mass produced and they were churning them out. Didn't have the dessert I wanted. Service was good, atmosphere good, food average.

    Solid and reasonably priced pub / restaurant with good beer/cider/lambic selection. Grab a seat then order & pay at the bar.

    VEGETARIANS AVOID. One option (tart), and they had to do a comprised version as they didn't have most of the ingredients. Was told pointedly that "they often sell out late in an evening". It was 8.30.

    Roast lamb is superb! Great cask ales too, perfect way to wile away a sunny Sunday afternoon in the garden with the chickens!

    The food took almost 50 min to be served, this happened for all of us, so we ate alone technically...
