I can't judge the food as we only had drinks and enjoyed the singer for open mic night. The drinks were good although the place appeared to be understaffed.

We had dinner here one night. I had a curry and my fiancee a stirfry. The portions are huge and well prices, we were full and had enough left over to take home and have for breakfast the next day.

Delicious large burgers with an interesting variety of fillings. Great selection of local beer, cider and cocktails and of course the snakebites. A very warm and cozy atmosphere with excellent service.

We stopped here for both dinner and breakfast. The food and the service was very good. I had a very tasty vegetable breakfast. Also, the next day, we purchased some meat pies from the cabinet food. They were delicious also.
