Delicious burgers wedges and onion rings. Great games to play while waiting. Be sure to ring and book the table by the fire in winter. Fab music and friendly staff too. Wide drink selection.

Really rude male staff member not helpful at all. Asked simple questions about what's on the menu which was met with rude sarcastic remarks. The female waitress came to assist who was lovely and helpful.
